State Support for Higher Ed at 25-Year Low

Enrollment up, inflation up, support stagnant = per-student state support at a 25 year low.

"Students from low-income families appear most likely to feel the squeeze. From 2001 to 2005, enrollment grew by 14.3 percent at public institutions and inflation grew by 14.2 percent, without corresponding increases in public funds, according to the annual study, which was released today by the association of State Higher Education Executive Officers."
