Research out today from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission shows that the number of students likely to need financial aid to finish a university degree rose by nearly one-third in the five years between 2007 and 2011.
In spite of that finding, the Commission voted Thursday to recommend a new round of tuition increases for the state’s universities, community colleges and technical schools.
