Odd the way these seem to come at Republican-led universities, like the ones helmed by Mitch Daniels and Margaret Spellings. “Fewer than 20 percent of North Carolinians know about major tuition cuts at three state universities, but leaders of the University of North Carolina System are working to change that,” Kari Travis writes in The Carolina Jounral. “Elizabeth City State University, UNC Pembroke, and Western Carolina University, under a program called NC Promise, now offer tuition of $500 per semester to in-state students.”

“Out-of-state students will pay reduced tuition of $2,500 per semester.” In addition to the duo named above, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has also cut tuition at state universities
