Sign the Petition: College Tuition is High Enough
The Rock the Ivory Tower folks have released a new video calling for accountability at colleges and universities for rising tuition costs. I've often thought that public schools in Texas have forgotten the original mission: provide an affordable and accessible higher education to students. Now, tuition and fees has risen 392% since 1986 and student loan debt in the US has surpassed credit card debt...equating to about $1 trillion. As Americans for Prosperity - Texas Director Peggy Venable said:
“Students are fed up with the fact that it is becoming more and more expensive to get a degree. They are being priced out of their own futures. Public universities need to adopt measures that will ensure every tax and tuition dollar is being spent to make sure educating students is the No. 1 priority.”
Here's the video:
You don't have to be a student to sign the petition to stop rising tuition costs. Your tax dollars pay into colleges and universities.
If you think tuition is just out of control, consider signing the petition.
