Governor Kasich says Ohio's public colleges and universities must find ways to lower tuition costs.

Governor Kasich wants to reduce the cost of public college tuition, and has promised to “take an ax” to the schools that fail to lower student costs. Average student debt is almost $30,000, and Kasich has formed a task force to find ways to reduce the burden. We’ll discuss where tuition money goes, and if it’s possible to fund education more economically.
