Why states are cutting back on higher education funding - Jillian Berman, Marketwatch

North Dakota and Alaska increased higher education spending between 2008 and 2014, but very other state cut higher education funding during the same period, the report found. On average, states cut per student spending by 21% during that period. Just two states in the country are spending as much on higher education per student as they did before the recession.“It’s going to be necessary to have some national leadership” on the issue, Allison said. “The recession had serious consequences on this generation -- trying to pay for college at a time when states are basically pulling the rug out from underneath them or trying to get a job during the worst economy since the great recession.” http://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-states-are-cutting-back-on-higher-education-funding-2016-01-07
