UA Proposes 22% Tuition Increase; Additional Increases Possible

The Arizona Daily Star is reporting that the University of Arizona is proposing a 22% increase in tuition. If approved by the Board of Regents, the new tuition level will be DOUBLE the tuition charged just six years ago.  This would still only raise $22 million. Governor Brewer's budget cuts $67 million from UA and the Senate budget cuts the UA by $92 million. 

And this is a state where the constitution requires that "higher education be as nearly free as possible"?
