When federal and state universities don't want people to be educated with there strikes. Then private universities should take over. Anybody that is in charge of education should be careful of closing those universities because they are helping our sisters and brothers to be educated pls. Learning is good, so anywhere learning comes from is learning . chikinaaaaaaaaaa.
