Approximated 7000 college students from around the state of California protested against a proposal that would increase tuition by 44%. Governor Schwarzenegger outlined this proposal do the overwhelming debt that California has witnessed in the last four years. After the increase, the cost of tuition would still be greatly subsidized by the state. States have increased their tuition far higher then the rate of inflation in the last 15 years, and enrollment hasn’t subsided. The demand for higher education has accelerated right along with price keeping a steadily increasing equilibreum. A competitive job market is making the demand for schooling increase. Students don't want to pay higher prices for school but the alternative is not a viable option. No degree makes the individual in many circumstances less marketable. The guestimation is that although students will kick and scream and protest, in the end you will find them in the classroom.
