Obama Urges Governors To 'Invest More In Education'
from Inside Higher Ed (Free subscription)
President Barack Obama, addressing the members of the National Governors Association on Monday, reiterated his views that higher education increasingly is important for individual Americans and for the country's economic future, and that rising prices threaten to put a postsecondary education out of reach for many. But while his speeches to campus leaders have focused on colleges' responsibility to contain their own costs and the prices they charge students, he used his appearance before the governors to reiterate his belief that states share significant culpability for driving up tuition prices.
