Colleges and universities are spending so much more time on politics than education that their educational status is becoming questionable. “A Michigan law firm filed an ethics complaint against a local community college, alleging that it used public resources to promote a local tax hike ballot initiative that would float even more taxpayer dollars to the school,” Kenneth Nelson writes on the Campus Reform site. “Attorney Karen Woodside filed an ethics complaint with the Michigan Secretary of State and against Schoolcraft College after some of the college’s employees allegedly used school computers to email voters, urging them to vote in favor of a property tax increase on Tuesday’s ballot.”

“Woodside alleged that these employees violated Michigan state law.”
