Kentucky Council Questions Tuition Raises

On Thursday, a special meeting will consider a recommendation on tuition rates for Kentucky’s universities.

The Council on Postsecondary Education will meet in Frankfort Thursday to discuss the issue.

The Louisville Courier Journal reports a staff recommendation says five of Kentucky’s higher education institutions should not be allowed to raise tuition as much as they're proposing.

The council staff did approve of a nine percent hike for UK and the University of Louisville.

    I agree with Terri, lets send this bunch of spineless creatures packing and start all over with people who actually can act in a responsible manner.

    Too much $$$ spent on sports and ballyhoo, not enough on academics. The robbery dictated by UK and others for textbooks is a good example of a downhill snowball out of control. Our universities are some of the best examples of extortionists found anywhere. Tighten your belts, that's what we're doing at my house.

    This is a sad day for Kentucky not only for the students but the instutions themselves and it all stems from our elected representatives NOT having enough (edited) to support education in this state. I can only hope that when election time comes around again we can send ALL of them packing both republican and democrat.
