Default WyoTech layoffs

I know I've seen many posts in this forum about moving to Laramie to teach at WyoTech. FYI:

WyoTech lays off 22 in Laramie | Laramie Boomerang | Laramie, Wyoming

I have a friend who was offered a teaching job at WyoTech about 4 months ago. He lives in CO and has a solid job in auto industry, but seriously considered it to pursue his dream of teaching...but he chose to stay at his current position. He said he definitely would have been out of a job now. Whew...

That's too bad. It's unfortunate that during a time like this, a recession, that money is hard to come by, prices are going up every day at the grocery store and business' like this, go backwards in thinking, IMHO.

They lay off staff and probably raise prices to make up for lost revinue due to student enrollment. IMO they should lower prices to get more enrollment to bring in more revinue. Beside lab materials, it doesn't cost any more for an instructor to teach 8 studends then it does to teach 10 students. Some would say that learning would suffer. I don't think so. Objectives still have to be met by the students, regardless of one on one hours with instructors.

But, it seems that a lot of business' have had to reduce staffing, and or services.

WyoTech has produced some pretty good results through the years. Wonder if the Obama Job package would have helped had it been a little earlier in the developement?
