Obama's Tuition Plan

  • January 31, 2012

LISTEN TO CHRISTOPHER PRADO, PRESIDENT OF THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS INC. AT CSUEB ON THE KQUED FORUM WEB SITE

President Obama's message to colleges is simple: perpetual tuition hikes are no longer an option. Last week, he promised to reward colleges if they hold the line on tuition increases. On the other hand, he told college administrators that if they don't stop tuition from going up, then the funding they get from taxpayers each year will go down. We discuss the president's proposal.
