Fear Over Funding For Universities

The best days of public funding for universities are behind us -- that from Alex Usher of Higher Education Strategy Associates.  He tells CHSJ News the rise of tuition fees will be faster in the next 10 years than in recent memory but affordability will not be an issue as student aid programs will adjust to compensate.  He says they find ways of helping students as long there is student aid available.

He adds even with the trend of tuition increases, there are more low-income people attending post-secondary schools than than there were fifteen years ago.
Usher was a guest speaker at the UNB Petition Celebration.
