Look at tuition, education costs - Brad Elliott, Wichita Eagle

First of all, we have to focus on education. It is the largest percentage of the budget and one of the largest expenses in the state’s budget. It costs approximately $6,000 to go to college at Fort Hays, Emporia, or Pittsburg State per year, and double that for KU, K-State and Wichita State. That is a bargain, especially for education of that caliber. We can afford to raise tuition, perhaps $1,000 per student, per year. But it’s out-of-state tuition where we can make the biggest difference. Today, a student from outside of Kansas can go to Fort Hays State, K-State or KU for roughly the same price as many states charge for in-state tuition.
