CHARTER SCHOOL INITIATIVE (HB1359) sign now

To: Governor Mark Warner and Members of the Virginia General Assembly

WE DEMAND THAT COLLEGE BE KEPT AFFORABLE FOR ALL CITIZENS OF THE COMMONWEALTH (HB 1359-Chartered Universities Initiative)

We, the undersigned, are concerned that the Charter Initiative permits the University of Virginia, William and Mary, and Virginia Tech to raise tuition for in-state students to market rate without obligating these same institutions to increase financial aid for lower- and middle-income students. We request that the Legislature and the Governor NOT grant tuition-setting authority to these schools without also obligating them to increase financial aid in step with tuition. While there are valid arguments for raising tuition to one degree or another, a college education must remain affordable for Commonwealth citizens of modest means.

    Virginia is so lucky to have the kind of quality public education that it has at the University level. It would truly be a shame to lose future students due to a lack of funds.
