德州各公立大學學費調漲聲中 試看各校收費情形

【駐休士頓臺北經濟文化辦事處文化組】

繼上週德州大學奧斯汀分校(U. of Texas at Austin)校長對德州大學系統董事會決定學費凍漲公開抗議後,最近大學學費調漲在德州成為一個很大的爭議點。雖然德大校長說明若學費不漲,將影響教學和研究的品質,但校董會以學費調漲使學生和家長無法負擔為由,決議德大系統的該旗鑑分校今年不得再漲學費。

目前德州公立高等教育的成本每年大約是7,000美金,但實際上各校的差異是一個很大的級距,以德州農工大學(Texas A&M U.)Texarkana分校的學雜費每年4,946美元為最低,而德州大學(U. Of Texas) Dallas分校每年11,168美金則最為昂貴。

除了德州大學(U. of Texas)系統內的Austin 和Arlington分校外,其他分校的學雜費在暑假以後將再調漲,Arlington分校則事前即說明他們明年一定會漲學費。德州農工大學(Texas A&M U.)校長Loftin今年並未向校董提出學費調漲的申請,但也說明今年是特例。

要兼顧高等教育的品質和學生的學費負擔能力,再加上州政府的補助年年喊砍,這些都讓茶壺裡的風暴再度蘊釀。尤其是上週在德大校董會對學費調漲案作出最後決議以前,州長Perry即公開對記者們表示,包括Obama總統、他個人、州高等教育局局長、甚至德大校董會主席等主流勢力都不願學費再漲,德大奧斯汀分校的Powers校長的喊漲顯然是選錯邊。
