Is Leasing A City's Waste Treatment Plant A Good Way to Raise Cash for Students?

Mayor Don Plusquellic of Akron, Ohio has an ambitious plan to help graduates of Akron's public high schools pay for college and trade school. The plan: lease the city's waste treatment facility to a private contractor and generate as much as $200 million.

Yeah, I know. You're thinking that maybe this story is a hoax, that it belongs in the Onion. But it's not. Click here to read the AP story.

Actually this is a cool idea. If the city can lease out and save $200 million that it will put towards education, that's really great. The money that is wasted is enormous in this country.

If that money went towards things like college, etc, we could churn out a whole lot of great students that would in turn, turn out a lot of great technological advances.
