Lawmakers debate college tuition

Prepare students to lead in evolving energy economy

Let’s put an even sharper point on the fact that our state needs more university degrees per capita [“Misperceptions stymie lawmakers on budgeting for college tuition,” Opinion, April 30]. Anyone who has traveled or worked abroad can readily see that the United States lags far behind much of the world when it comes to developing a clean-energy economy.

In order for our children and grandchildren to thrive, we must create the infrastructure to prepare university graduates to be managers and leaders in the evolving energy economy. Western Washington University’s Institute for Energy Studies is perfectly poised to do just that. It is one of the wisest investments our state-elected officials can make.
