Support for Public Universities Still Below Pre-Recession Levels - Pete Musto, Voice of America

Public colleges and universities in the United States depend heavily on financial support from the states in which they are located. But a new report shows the level of support for these schools is still well below what it was ten years ago, before the great recession of 2008. The State Higher Education Executive Officers association, or SHEEO, released the report in April. It looked at the average amount of money per student each state in the U.S. gave to its public universities for the 2016 fiscal year. It also looked at the national overall average of state spending per student on public higher education. George Pernsteiner is the president of the SHEEO. He says the economic recession marked a difficult period for state funding of public universities.
