Yup. The right and access to an affordable public education used to be an equalizer for the middle/lower class. It seems to be going away.

I would LOVE to go to a public university that charged less than $10,000 a year.

Yay Public Education reform!!

ouch, public schools costing 10K a year? Come to Florida, it's about $4,000 a year and then after bright futures (assuming you get it, everyone is eligible if you went to HS here) it's around $600.

I just kinda threw that out there but I'm glad (well, not really...) to know that I wasn't overestimating the cost. I think my sister pays about $5000 per semester but I know her school is cheap compared to MSU and UofM.
