UVa. tuition going up 10 percent

By Washington Post editors

In-state undergraduates at the University of Virginia will see tuition rise by nearly 10 percent in the upcoming school year.

The university's Board of Visitors voted Friday to increase tuition and mandatory fees for Virginia undergraduates from $9,672 to $10,628 in 2010-11. The board blames cuts in state funding and the reduction in federal stimulus money to help hold down tuition increases.

Out-of-state undergraduates will see tuition and fees rise to $33,574, or 6 percent.

The university plans to increase the price of undergraduate meal plans by an average of 3.5 percent, between $40 and $140 per semester. Housing rates will go up on average by nearly 5 percent.

Okay, time to come clean. How many of you college and univerity folks that voed for King Obonehead, really believed that King Obonehead was going to reduce college costs?

Don't worry. UCLA and the rest of the University of California and California State University students are too busy protesting, instead of getting a J-O-B.

So, the "Stimulus Money" was used for "what?" it sure doesn't sound like "shovel ready jobs" to me.

King Obonehead's nose just gets bigger and bigger....
