Stop the presses

Posted By on Thu, Mar 12, 2009 at 3:48 PM

The University of Arkansas, meaning the campus in Fayetteville, has announced that it hopes to hold the line on tuition next year. It would be the first in 24 years without a tuition increase.

NOTE: Following a close reading of this story, I need to add that it appears this promise of no tuition increase has about as many contingencies as a Gulf Coast hurricane insurance policy. You could argue that the UA is making a plea to the legislature for all manner of funding restoration and additions to protect students from tuition increases. And if they don't get it, well, you know who to blame.

Gun to legislature's head or grandstanding? You decide.
