"Students across U.S. plan to protest education funding cuts" - CNN News

In America, college students plan to protest at across the nation because of education funding cuts affecting students nationwide. Education funding cuts are causing college students to take on more debt for their college tuitions. State universities funds being cut are causing even higher tuition costs. Also, colleges aren't the only schools having their funds cut; secondary education and even elementary schools are as well. An example of these cuts that seems to be becoming more and more common is located in the state of California. California has cut a grand total of nearly one billion dollars between the years of 2008 and 2010. Schools have to adjust by canceling classes and increasing their fees. This is important to know because this could be affecting all incoming and future college students. Not only could it affect college students directly but it could also affect elementary school students as well. Causing increased fees could cause issues in the family households nationwide, being able to pay mandatory bills will become more difficult. More difficult because of the economic recession the U.S. is currently in.
