Draggingtree Posted September 22, 2012 Share Posted September 22, 2012 statesman.com: Perry outlines plan to lock in college fees By Mike Ward Updated: 10:13 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 Published: 10:11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 Expanding his earlier push against escalating higher-education prices, Gov. Rick Perry on Friday endorsed a four-year tuition "freeze" at state colleges and universities as a way to give freshmen certainty about education costs. How it might work: Instead of an actual freeze, it would guarantee or lock in a tuition rate for a student for four years that would be exempt from any tuition increases. Presumably, students who entered school in different years might get different tuition rates guaranteed. A fifth year of study presumably would go back to prevailing tuition prices.
