Tuition Jump in Florida Wins Backing of Governor

This from the New York Times:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Charlie Crist urged the Legislature on Thursday to allow double-digit tuition increases at all of Florida’s 11 public universities as a way of blunting the impact of state-ordered budget cuts imposed over the last two years.

The proposal from Mr. Crist, who in the past has opposed raising tuition, would give individual universities the power to increase it up to 15 percent annually until Florida’s in-state tuition rate reached the national average, now about $6,500 a year.
