The underlying problem is that Texas is providing less financial support for its public universities. This has led universities to shore up their base with tuition. If Texas was truly commited to excellence in higher education, it would give greater base support to its public colleges.

Here is how you may obtain a tuition freeze (or, if u play tr cards right, even a rolback, but NOt A FREE HANDOUT lol)

→ Stop your complaining do something about it!

→ College students are super deep in debt, and even beginning to commit suicide at an alarmingly increased rate.-- So that's a head's up: Some sort of problem exists -- read on...

American colleges in the 1950's were TOPS in the world, and yet did NOT bankrupt the student, so, without going into details of the causes, I ask 1 thing:

Does my Petition to The President here address this properly with proper solutions?

The link is http://wh.gov/jU8

Tags: Education, Colleges, Tuition, Debt, slavery (as in DEBT Slavery -- indentured servitude -- ruined credit -- etc.)

Conservatives such as myself, are incensed with the obscenely high tax placed on students (tuition is legally a tax, as it flows to the government, State Universities in most cases)

Liberals are *also* on our side, as they don't like being stepped on by 'The Man'

Note: I'm conservative, so I'm not asking for 100%-total forgiveness of student debt (e.g I don't wanna free handout)--but just basic things like standard consumer protections for student debt that even credit card users have.

PS: If I get 150 signatures, then my petition becomes searchable in The Whitehouse database, and defending the helpless becomes much easier.

Is my petition to The President good, or bad? Tell me what you think...(and, if it's good, sign it & tell yr friend to do likewise)

Stop your complaining do something about it! Sign the peition http://wh.gov/jU8 & ask your peeps & email list to do likewise.

Another way would be to charge out of state tuition to out of state people and also double the out of state tuition to out of country students . Why do Mexican students pay in state tuition ??

Interesting ideas, Vet, but this is mere rearrangement of the furniture on the deck of the Titanic.

True reform hits at the core basis of th problem: Tuirion has SKY-ROCKETED at a rate FAR faster than inflation, and that NOT justified by quality -as quality has actually gone down.

See the link at point #4 of said petition for proof of these claims and an explanation as to why it happened --and what can be done.
