Two state university systems shrink over a year and a decade

For years I’ve been projecting and observing a decline in American higher education. Reality keeps giving examples of those projections becoming observable data. Today’s case in point is a pair of state university systems, one in Pennsylvania, the other in New York.

First, enrollment in the fourteen-campus Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) system slid down 5.4% this semester, according to Susan Snyder. That’s steeper than the overall national decline of 3.2%, according to the National Student Clearinghouse.
