http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm...day/20040908/ts_usatoday/tuitionhikeswillease College tuition not rising as fast. My kids problem is not tuition, but rather 'board'. I don't know if other state universities are doing this, but in IL, they have 'levels' of 'board'. The first, would be a kid that eats toast and juice for breakfast. (Gee, my boys need pancakes or waffles or eggs plus more). Lunch on the plan would be a salad-no meat and a coke or coffee. Dinner, entree and drink. There are 5 more tiers, each of which allow the kid to go 'over' the plan, for a 7-11 type store or certain fast food choices. My older son is now in an apartment. The youngest runs at least 12 miles per day. Guess which plan we need to sign up for?
