Obama spotlights Higher Education during State of the Union

 

President Obama put the spotlight on student debt and federal support of higher education in his State of the Union speech last night. The President put the nations universities "on notice" that the federal government would not continue to "subsidize skyrocketing tuition." The President said: "If you can't stop tuition from going up, the funding you get from taxpayers will go down. Higher education can't be a luxury, it is an economic imperative that every family should be able to afford." More details of this warning will be released Friday in Ann Arbor. http://chronicle.com/article/Obama-Puts-Focus-on-Higher/130447/
