High Tuition drives students out of Wisconsin

Okay, so I don't really know that this is the reason, but the National Center for Education Statistics reported that in 2000, Wisconsin had a net inflow of over 1500, but in 2004, that had changed to an outflow of about 1000.

That means it was a swing of 2500 over those 4 years. The most significant change here has been the massive tuition increases, especially for out-of-state students.

It seems pretty clear to me that it isn't the cold or the quality, but the ever increasing price that is starting to price Wisconsin higher education out of the market!
