Panel urges tuition changes to boost Ohio grads



Published: Tue, November 13, 2012 @ 12:23 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A panel studying ways to boost Ohio’s college graduation rate says tuition should be raised on students to out-of-state rates and the state should withhold money from those students’ institutions if they’re taking too long to graduate.

In a report released today, the Complete College Ohio Task Force says institutions should tie tuition guarantees to completing on a set schedule, and distribute financial aid like a paycheck to encourage students to work less and take more classes.

Ohio Chancellor Jim Petro told educators in Columbus completion is the state’s most-important higher education challenge. Only about a quarter of Ohioans have college degrees, about five points below the national average.

The task force also wants to see families and high schools more engaged, and sooner, in students’ college planning.

this has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Tuition is high, if a student works less even with financial aid how can they afford more classes. This is what happens when you let repuglicans handle public education.
