The Daily Wildcat is reporting that the minimum tuition bill, that would have forced students to pay at least $2000 in tuition regardless of need-based scholarships, was withdrawn yesterday. It’s great news for students – and really anyone who cares about higher education. Thanks go out to everyone who raised a fuss and especially student activists that were involved in speaking out against the bill.
In honor of the bill’s withdrawal, I’d love to quote our very own Arizona Constitution, Article 11, Section 6
The university and all other state educational institutions shall be open to students of both sexes, and the instruction furnished shall be as nearly free as possible.
