The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is offering its opinion on key issues in the gubernatorial race, and K-12 and higher education is the focus of today’s editorial.
The editorial board writes that a tuition freeze is politically popular, but ultimately can harm the university:
. . . the fact is that such a continued freeze could hurt the system’s ability to attract and retain faculty. UW schools are a bargain, with average costs, and quality doesn’t come cheap.
The Journal Sentinel maintains the state should eliminate the tuition freeze while improving funding for UW System.
