Nerd News: UK Higher Education Budget Cuts Spark Protests

Things are tough all over. The "financial meltdown on campus" tag is back with a vengeance.

Look, I understand that things are hard and that money is tight on campuses everywhere; believe me, I understand. But the protesters are demanding BOTH no budget cuts AND no tuition increases. It's pretty much impossible to have both in the current real-world circumstances. In fact, even with both unpopular actions in place, some schools are still going to be in deep financial trouble.
