Funding Higher Education - the North-South Divide

State Senator John Lee, D-North Las Vegas, argues that students in Southern Nevada are subsidizing students in the North. UNLV generates 40% of tuition revenue for the system while UNR generates only 27% but both get equal state funding. So what led to this inequity and how can it be fixed? Or does it need to be fixed?

Support comes from

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
