Seattle Times letters to the editor

Funding education: Responsibility rests solely with the Legislature

I would like to respond to the column by Jon Talton “Eyes turn to superrich to fill university gap” [Business/Technology, Sept. 13].

I agree that there is a critical need to support higher education in this state. However, relying on the generosity of the superrich, who have already given generously to most of the universities plus a multitude of other causes, seems to be misplacing the responsibility of our society.

The Legislature should take on the responsibility for this matter and figure out a way to solve it. This could be done by rearranging the distribution of available funds (already being attempted ) or better by revamping our revenue sources.

Robert Lewis, Mercer Island
