Experts: Higher Education Reinvestments Needed In Illinois & Nationwide - Progress Illinois

Illinois, and nearly every other U.S. state, is spending less today on higher education than when the Great Recession started, according to new research from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP). CBPP's report, issued last week, details how state-level cuts to higher education funding over recent years have been a key cause of "steep tuition increases that threaten to put college out of reach for more students." The center's research comes at a time when Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has proposed deep cuts to higher education as part of his 2016 budget plan. http://progressillinois.com/quick-hits/content/2015/05/18/experts-higher-education-reinvestments-needed-illinois-other-states
