Higher Education Rally
"More money for higher education." That's the message students from campuses across Alabama are sending to state lawmakers. Hundreds of college students and education advocates rallied today in Montgomery while legislators were inside the statehouse working on the education budget. The students are urging lawmakers to allocate more money for colleges and universities to help keep the cost of tuition from rising even more. Right now, about 26 percent of the $5.9 billion budget is set aside for higher education.
