A recent report from the College Republican National Committee, which claims the Grand Old Party is out of touch with the priorities of young people, is the latest talking point used by establishment Republican leaders to urge jettisoning or toning down conservative planks in the party’s platform. But elected Republican leaders at the state level have found a different approach, one that is far more likely to achieve success in both the short and long run. They have pursued a vision for higher education that will make college far more affordable for young people. Their proposals offer another dividend: challenging an arrogant, bloated academic infrastructure that aggressively inculcates liberalism, at a high price for both college students and the nation.
