Tuition shock

Philadelphia Inquirer | 07/22/2005 | Tuition shock: "'Going back to the founding of this country, private higher education was always king in the Northeast,' said Graham Spanier, president of Pennsylvania State University. 'Public higher education was never valued at the same level, never funded here the way it was in other states.'

Indeed, Pennsylvania ranks 46th and New Jersey 44th out of the states in their support for higher education, according to the newsletter Postsecondary Education Opportunity.

With that level of support, local public institutions have little choice but to charge high tuition."
