In his State of the State address, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland reiterated his commitment to freezing tuition at four-year universities for 2010 and to capping a tuition increase at 3.5 percent in 2011, the Daily Kent Stater


reports. He also announced a freeze at two-year and regional campuses for two years. The promise sounds like good news for students, but the schools themselves are likely hoping the governor's commitment to tuition is followed through with no drop in state funding to higher education. Or else he might end up like this guy.
