Montana flunking in support for state colleges, report card says - Gail Schontzler, Bozeman Chronicle

Montana gets a D-plus grade for state spending on higher education, says a national group advocating college affordability and reducing student debt. Young Invincibles, a nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., issued report cards Friday for each state. The report cards, aimed at influencing legislators and empowering student activists, grade how much of a financial burden is borne by students and their families and how much the states spend to support public colleges and student financial aid. “Decades of state budget disinvestment from public higher education caused tuition hikes and skyrocketing student debt,” according to the Young Invincibles’ Student Impact Project website. http://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/news/education/montana-flunking-in-support-for-state-colleges-report-card-says/article_df7ac513-05e9-560f-a276-09989b4278f6.html
