Yes, I hope states can keep up the quality of education at State U's. For many people, my family included, they have served as a springboard to allow us to jump a couple notches up the ladder.
My apology for speaking inexactly. I should have written As tuition increases the TOTAL cost ratio is 2 or 3 to 1 I agree there is little difference in the "other costs"
