When our local tax dollars go to wealthy corporations instead of higher education of course receiving a college degree will become more expensive.

Corporate welfare is such a waste of tax dollars.

College tuition is a case study of government funded hyper-inflation. There is a time-line coordination between the sky rocketed cost of tuition and available government funding (grants, loans, etc.). The never-ending supply of government money is just a student loan away from the insatiable appetite of the bureaucracy that is higher education. Students have been willing to sign on to the high price of education only because there is no correlation as to the real cost. The deferred payment schedule (loans) provides no understanding of the real cost of education.

If students were to earn and pay for a college education as it is consumed the price would be driven down post haste.

"Who should be most responsible for making tuition to a state college affordable?" The consumers' demand would set affordable rates if it was allowed to operate unmolested by government funding.

Absolutely the Board of Regents. If you let the legislature decide tuition, you get Colorado.
