Absolutely NOTHING University of Hawaii President Lassner can do
ALL Democrats (Democrat Politicians, Democratic Party Members, Democrat Party Voters Democrat U.S. Labor Union Owned Teachers and Professors, Democrat U.S. Labor Union Members, Democrats created Independence Party (A "Spoiler Party" that when they lose, automatically votes Democrat), ALL Democrats) Must Fix What they Broke, Damaged or Destroyed ever since the Democrats Overthrew the Kingdom of Hawaii for Denying the Democrats their "Democratic Rights and Freedoms" (Democrats Written Justification to the U.S. President for Hawaii Democrats to Overthrow the Kingdom of Hawaii by using the U.S. Military under the Democrats Appointed Hawaii Democratic Government Control). ONLY the Democrats must pay for this, not all U.S. Citizens of The Union of States of the United States of the Republic of America that are not Democrats including NO Democrat Taxes for Non Democrats.
Other U.S. States have a Democrat U.S. Labor Union Rate of 4 percent to 6 percent, and decreasing.
At the Democrats' U.S. Island State of Hawaii has a Democrat U.S. Labor Union Rate of about 60 percent and rising.
Attempts to draw correlations between Birth Rates (old information), the Democrats' Caused 2008 Great Recession
"as the State’s Economy was recovering from the Recession. Manoa’s student count has since plummeted by 12 percent over the last five years, with the drop in students growing steeper each year.",
as if the Democrat's Caused 2008 Great Recession was the Cause then during the Recovery the numbers should have increased not decreased by 12 percent).
"Lassner says part of the reason enrollment has trailed off is because UH is graduating more students on time",
possible meaning University of Hawaii is producing Useless Degrees.
Once again the "Fewer students also means less tuition collected. On top of that, the UH Board of Regents voted last summer to hold tuition flat for the upcoming academic year. Annual full-time resident tuition is $10,872 at Manoa."
Means absolutely NOTHING, because of the Democrats Support of the Obsolete U.S. Laws, that required that the U.S. Citizens of Hawaii be Punished for Living at Paradise with "Paradise Taxes", then the expensive Shipping and Handling are Added to the "Paradise Taxes", the Democrats U.S. Island State of Hawaii Cost of Living is Extremely High, the percentage of Democrats' U.S. Labor Unions caused Massive Inflation (requiring Huge City and County of Honolulu Taxes, U.S. Island State of Hawaii Taxes), Extremely High Costs for Democrats' U.S. Labor Union Hourly Labor, High Costs for Basic Utilities, High Costs for Basic Food, No Such Thing as "Affordable Housing" Democrats Caused "Hawaii Homeless Crisis".
The University of Hawaii as a Democrat U.S. Island State of Hawaii Government Entity, receives Tax Money from the Democrats' State of Hawaii Government (Everybody's Money), so any losses of UH are losses to the U.S. Citizens of Hawaii, with the Democrats not caring (Spending other peoples' money), after Decades of this Nonsense, many demanded that the University of Hawaii become Independent of the Democrat State Politicians, Self Sustaining, and A Political (without Politics) this of course was Voted Down by the Democrat Party Controlled State of Hawaii Senators and Legislature fully backed by the Democrats' U.S. Labor Unions (that own Hawaii's Teachers and Professors).
The Democratic Party's U.S. Labor Unions have always demanded that as Democratic Party U.S. Labor Union Members of Teachers and Professor Must state (say), teach, the Democratic Party Propaganda Only to be Democrat U.S. Labor Union Members in Good Standing.
"“Our retention numbers are nowhere near where we need to be. We are still losing 25 percent or so — and that’s a pretty steady number — of freshman who do not come back as sophomores,” Lassner said."
The reason, after completing most of the "Core Requirements" at the University of Hawaii or the University of Hawaii Community Colleges as Freshmen, most Hawaii Citizens then go to the Real Colleges or Universities at the Mainland to get a Real Degree from Recognized Mainland Colleges and Universities known for Academics, instead of a UH Football Team (that mostly loses anyway), all Hawaii Citizens pay for the UH Football Team thru Taxes Collected and given to UH.
"Tanabe said one of his group’s strategies involved offering so-called “retention grants” in the spring to 230 undergraduate students after performing a statistical analysis of students who were most likely to not return."
Democrats Throwing Hawaii's Taxpayer Money Again at a Problem is what Democrats do, that solves nothing.
"Local students also said attending UH allows them to stay in Hawaii and save on rent while living with family."
Nope, due to the Democrats Support of the U.S. Laws that require Paradise Taxes to provide 50,000 Middle Class Jobs at the other 49 U.S. States, the High Cost of Everything at Hawaii negates living with family, as a matter of fact, negated so much that One (1) of Four (4) of Hawaii's Millennials (3/4ths, 75 percent) Must Leave the Democrats' U.S. Island State of Hawaii or become Hawaii's New Homeless.
"Xiaoyu Bai came to Hawaii from China three years ago to study at UH Manoa and recently graduated with a master’s degree in atmospheric sciences. She’s working as a research assistant in the department while she contemplates a doctorate degree program."
Who's paying for that, if the Chinese Government, the Chinese Government has been placing Chinese "Sleeper Agents" into the U.S. and other U.S. Ally Nations, to steal U.S. High Technology Research, U.S. Advanced Technology, U.S. High Technology, U.S. High Technology Manufacturing, U.S. Financial Information, U.S. Research and Development, U.S. Industrial Sciences, this saves the Chinese Government $Billions a Year by not having to do their own Extremely Expensive Research and Development.
How successful "Sleeper Agents" work, unremarkable lives as not to draw attention, they are allowed to live a "Normal Life". their Records do not indicate any Espionage, Military or Special Training of any Kind. When asked to provide Intelligence, as Loyal Citizens of their Nation that is what they do.
The U.S.S.R.'s KGB used lots of "Sleeper Agents" within the U.S., that Grocery Store Worker, Cashier, Waitress, Gas Station Attendant, Mechanic, Construction Worker, Teacher or Professor, after the Fall of the U.S.S.R. the KGB was turned into the FSB, for Political Reasons a severe mistake was made by the Russian Federation Bureaucrats, of releasing the names on lists of some of the U.S.S.R.'s KGB "Sleeper Agents" at the U.S. And U.S. Allies Nations.
The U.S.S.R. used to "Launder" their "Sleeper Agents", as their "Sleeper Agents" first became Citizens of another Nation, then Immigrated to the U.S. and U.S. Allies Nations. Some of the U.S.S.R.'s "Sleeper Agents" were specially trained for years at Recreated U.S. Towns at remote areas of the U.S.S.R..
At China, after General Motors, Chrysler, Ford, built U.S. High Technology Computer Controlled Fully Automated Plants and Factories to Manufacturer all GM, Ford, Chrysler Parts, those Chinese Janitors with Doctorate Degrees in Science was more than likely are Chinese Government "Sleeper Agents". Within a couple of years, the Chinese Government built U.S. High Technology Chinese Fully Automated Computer Controlled Plants and Factories mostly to build stolen from the U.S. (High Technology), as Chinese High Technology Weapons and Weapons Systems for the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army Navy and Air Force (PLAN) that "Adopted" U.S. High Technology that is not even Manufactured for the U.S. Defense, making most of the U.S. Defense's current and Future High Technology Obsolete.
At many Islamic Nations, if you become a Muslim (Islamic Believer completely subjugated to Islam), become a Citizen of that Islamic Nation, the Government will provide Tuition, Room and Board, All Expenses Paid to get a College and or University Degree anywhere in the World, including Post Graduate Degrees, especially Professional Degrees of Medical Doctor or Lawyer. At U.S. Ally President Gaddaffi's Libya also paid an Additional 350 Euros a Month of Spending Money, fully funded Vehicle (including money for fuel), as to why many Libyan Citizens had Advanced Degrees, Post Graduate Degrees, Medical Doctor (Doctorate, PhD) Degrees, PhD Engineering Degrees (mostly CE PhD, Civil Engineering). And paid the same Salary while you were getting your Degree(s) at the same level as if you were working in that profession, even Libya's Unemployed got paid the same Salary as if they were Employed. Absolutely no such thing as "Student Debt".
Ever since Democrat President Obama Overthrew U.S Ally President Gaddaffi the Libyan Citizens get NOTHING from the Democrat President Obama Supported Non Libyan Citizens "Libyan Rebels" of Al Quada's Ansar Al Shariah as Democrat President Obama's Supported "Democratic Libyan Government".
Some European Nations, if you are a Citizen, have all Tuition, Books, sometimes Room and Board (Three Meals a Day, Dormitory) paid for. They do in most cases require you to do an Internship with one of their Nation's Businesses or Professions of the Degree you are Studying For.
Other Main Factor, like Democrat President Clinton's 1993 to 2001 Destruction of the U.S. Defense (U.S. Military, U.S. Intelligence Agencies, U.S. Department of State U.S. Defense Related Programs and Projects, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers U.S. Infrastructure Projects and Programs, U.S. Defense Civilian Contractors, U.S. Defense Federal Civil Service, and many more), Democrat President Obama Ordered as Commander In Chief that Secretary of Defense Gates Cut the U.S. Defense Budget by 50% while the U.S. was involved in Two Wars (Iraq and Afghanistan) started by Democrat President Clinton's Declared War Against Iraq, Democrat President Obama's Secret Wars that were Illegal and Unfunded with no U.S. Laws, nor U.S. Congressional Appropriations, 75 "Armed Conflicts". That Resulted in the Unnecessary Deaths of U.S. Citizens of the U.S. Defense.
And Resulted in 50 Million "Middle Class" U.S. Citizens to be dumped on Unemployment from the about 100 Million "Middle Class" U.S. Citizens directly or Indirectly Employed by Democrat President FDR's Created Labor Intensive U.S. Military Defense Industrial Complex. The 50 Million "Middle Class" U.S. Citizens Unemployed added to the other 45 Million U.S. Citizens Unemployed (including those Reduction In Force'd from the U.S. Military by Democrat President Obama) equals about 95 Million Unemployed U.S. Citizens. Meaning 95 Million Unemployed cannot afford ANYTHING, especially a College or University Degree. This is very valuable to the Democratic Party, and the Democrats U.S. Labor Unions to force More U.S. Citizens to become Democrats and Democrat U.S. Labor Union Members. And with that many Unemployed the Democrats can claim that if the Unemployed do not Vote Democrat, the Republicans will take away their Unemployment Benefits and Entitlements (eventhough History records that the Democrats routinely take away Unemployment Benefits and Entitlements).
