Editorial: Affordable college hope slipping away - Daily Hampshire Gazette

Though classes start in 57 days at the University of Massachusetts, and it is 39 days before bills come due, students and their families still don’t know the price. They find out Thursday, when trustees set tuition for the coming year. But the bad news is already out: The cost of attending UMass could be $1,500 higher, or even more. After all the talk of controlling higher ed costs, and a few years when bills didn’t increase at UMass, undergraduates and their families face the prospect of a 5 to 8 percent rise. It will be the second year of increases and comes after the state closed a fiscal year deep in a hole.
