Looks like the University of Missouri still hasn't recovered from the mishandling of student protests three years ago. Hundreds of jobs and millions in funding were lost so some privileged kids could throw an uninterrupted tantrum for a year.

Maybe I missed something, but I don't see anything in the article proving that protests caused a loss of millions of dollars and hundreds of jobs.

You can chalk it up to unlucky correlation and dismiss it, if you like.

"Administrators have also cited state budget cuts and a decrease in high school graduates pursuing higher education for the dropping enrollment." Nothing that says why there were budget cuts, are you blaming the protests for that? Or are the millions of dollars you refer to being lost elsewhere?
JoeyAuthor
Escape, ok, we can do this. It's widely accepted that the enrollment drop was due to the protests in 2015. https://www.kansascity.com/news/state/missouri/article152939139.html

Escape, last year 328 jobs were cut and 60 million in funding due to enrollment drop. https://www.columbiatribune.com/news/20170520/mu-budget-proposal-calls-for-nearly-60-million-in-cuts

Escape, sorry for the multiple links, I was trying to cover my bases. I thought it was more commonly known that Mizzou protests severely damaged the school's reputation. Let me know if I have any holes here.
Escape
Joey, thanks for the links. I do believe some of your editorializing is unfair, but it's valid in your opinion so
JoeyAuthor
Escape, which part of my editorializing do you think is unfair?
Escape
Joey, maybe unfair was the wrong word but we probably define privileged and tantrums differently. So we can agree to disagree and move on . However, thanks again for all the links.
JoeyAuthor
Escape, no problem. Thanks.
