Affording College in Tennessee

Okay, sure, we got an F. But it was a high F.

Slightly paraphrased from the LA Times:

Only two states, New York and Tennessee, have made it cheaper in recent years to afford higher education, the report found. But their improvement was so slight, they joined 47 other states in scoring an F for affordability.

California was the only non-F. But the state's "C" grade was somewhat misleading, however, as it reflected bargain-basement sticker prices at the state's two-year colleges.

The grades were issued by the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education.
