The Seattle Times wrote an interesting article in this morning’s paper about the budget question facing us about higher education.

We have to decide if we want to allow the universities to raise tuition, or just continue to reduce the state’s investment in higher ed – something that will have devastating long-term consequences for economic competitiveness of the state if we do so.
