GOP Forces College Students to Pay More.

MNGOP Tuition34Thanks to GOP legislators, those attending Minnesota’s seven state universities will see their tuition increase for the first time since 2012.

The Star Tribune writes:

“Tuition will climb an average of $233 this fall at Minnesota’s seven state universities, to just over $7,000 a year.”

House Republicans refused to fund a complete tuition freeze for all of Minnesota’s state colleges and universities, preferring to hold $1 billion back for corporate tax breaks next year. The result is an average 3.4% tuition increase for many of Minnesota’s college students at a time when the student loan debt burden is greater than ever.

We should be making college more affordable, not less.
