Perhaps Canadian governments will soon choose to again follow the Americans and return funding of higher education to levels that permit colleges and universities to meet student needs. From the ASEE aggregator:
The Wall Street Journal (1/21, Belkin, Subscription Publication) reports that spending by state governments on higher education is up about six percent in FY14 after four years of straight declines. While the gains are uneven, they are widespread, with 40 states increasing funding compared to only 10 decreasing it, according to data put together by researchers at Illinois State University. However, state government spending on higher education remains 11 percent below its level of five years ago in real-dollar terms.
