Report: Rising college tuition affects students' future success - Stephanie Carson, NC News Service

North Carolina in the last eight years has reduced its spending per student enrolled in higher education by 20 percent, and a report issued this week by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities says these kinds of cuts are having an impact on students' potential for success. In addition to cutting services, public universities in the state are raising tuition. Michael Mitchell, a CBPP senior policy analyst, said the high cost of college is putting a lid on what graduates can achieve after college. "High levels of debt, even with a diploma, can prohibit newly graduated individuals from starting their own businesses and becoming entrepreneurs," he said, "which of course has implications not only for their own lives, but for the communities that they live in that would have benefited from having an additional entrepreneur."
