A sentence

Post by pdh0224 » Thu Oct 21, 2004 2:56 am

Dear teacher,

The survey, of nearly 2,700 colleges and universities, did not attempt to pin down the reasons for the steep increases. But among the many factors cited by its authors and other higher education experts were shrinking endowments, big increases in health insurance costs for campus employees and anemic higher education spending by states.

Q : What does "anemic higher education spending" mean? I think it means states don't spend a lot of money to higher education. Am I right?
