Today’s news:

Gov’t must do more to aid students

TimesLedger Newspapers

The decision by City University of New York board of trustees to raise student tuition is unfair. Students are already paying a hefty amount and many of them have student loans, which are going to be difficult to repay.

Our college students today across the country are having a difficult time paying their tuition and student loans, and the recession has contributed to this difficulty. Government at the local, state and federal levels need to come up with a plan that will ease the burden of high tuition and student loan payments for college students all across the country.

Education is critical to job placement for our students. We need to prioritize our concerns regarding this important and critical issue.
