Tuition Going Up (Again)

"With Oklahomans facing higher prices on everything from gasoline to groceries, this is no time for Oklahoma's wealthy and highly profitable universities to raise tuition," some of us argued today. "Rather, if they would reduce administrative overhead, set priorities, and require professors to teach more, they could afford to do what some of their private-sector counterparts are doing in these tough economic times: reduce tuition."

Regrettably, this is not the path the state regents chose today.
