Scenes from the Class Struggle in My Hometown

with one comment

From Inside Higher Ed:

Facing criticism from local politicians and conservative groups, the County College of Morris board this week reversed a policy on undocumented students that was adopted only two months ago, The Star-Ledger reported. The New Jersey community college had voted to permit such students to pay in-state tuition rates if they graduated from high school in the United States and entered the country before the age of 16. But this week, the board voted to charge such students out-of-state tuition rates. For a full-time student, the shift increases tuition for a year from $3,450 to $9,780. The Daily Record reported that several board members were influenced by the threat of a lawsuit over the policy granting in-state tuition rates.

Baby, this town rips the bones from your back. It’s a death trap, it’s a suicide rap…

  1. A high school classmate’s alternative headline for this one was “Jerseyzona.” Seems about right.
