The Governor's budget will raise tuition by 7% over the next two years at a time when the state has a 17.6 billion surplus.
For two decades, the state of Minnesota has balanced the budget on the backs of students. Over the last 20 years, tuition has gone up a whopping 293%. That has resulted in Minnesotans holding $27 billion in student debt that holding back an entire generation.
We must send a message that college should be affordable for ALL Minnesotans. That is why we are advocating that college be free in Minnesota.
