Ohio flunks higher education - the Beacon Journal

Ohio flunked. The Student Impact Project of Young Invincibles, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that the voices of young people are heard in the national debate, awarded an F to the state for its support of public higher education. The grade was part of an annual evaluation of all 50 states released this week. Ohio was one of 19 states to receive a failing mark as measured by accessibility and affordability. The lousy grade hardly surprises, even with state lawmakers adding $369 million for higher education in the current state budget. They also have limited overall tuition increases to 10 percent since 2008, one of the lowest rates of increase in the country.
