Doyle's Regents to Screw Wisconsin Families Again

The Regents have the wrong priorities.

According to Madison's WISC-TV.

MADISON, Wis. -- Resident students in the University of Wisconsin System would see a 6.8 percent tuition increase next fall under a plan released on Thursday.

The increases would translate to $382 more per year for students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, $374 more at UW-Milwaukee and $291 more at all other UW campuses.

The plan would also lower out-of-state tuition at all campuses except UW-Madison as part of a plan to attract more students from other states.

The UW System Board of Regents is expected to consider the plan at a meeting at UW-Milwaukee next week.

UW System officials said that the tuition hike will generate $44 million in revenue, which will be used to pay for utilities, technology improvements and employee salary and benefits.

What part of University of WISCONSIN do they not understand?

If any tuition has to be raised, OUT OF STATE tuition should be the first.

Brian: Out-of-state tuition, which is much higher than in-state, subsidizes in-state tuition. Bring in more out-of-staters, you keep costs down for in-staters.
Do the math and tamp down on your Gordon Roseleipesque zenophobia.

And did you notice the other day that the state will not make UW tuitions free to vets. That's great for vets, but it will raise all other tuition costs to make up the difference.

Out of state tuition could subsidize even more Wisconsin kids if Doyle's Regents didn't keep cutting their tuition and raising Wisconsin residents'.

The role of the STATE university is to educate the state's children.

The UW would remain a popular destination for out of state students if tuition remained as is or was even increased by the rate of inflation for out of state students.

How many out of state students are turned away every year? Supply...Demand.

Nice oleo reference though!

Why don't we just lay off a few administrators so we don't have to raise tuition?
