What a good public university can do

The value of public educational institutions extends far beyond the K-12 schools I wrote about earlier this month. Public universities can also be outsize contributors to the public good. Washington Monthly has a track record of excellent work on higher ed — this article on the University of California system is a great example.  It describes how the UC system has largely managed to be free tuition, even after the Reagan administration abolished free tuition for all.
