Higher Education Debt/Funding. Members Deborah Orr and Lucia Williams will help us explore this problematic situation.

The League of Women Voters of Illinois supports sustained allocation of state funds for public higher education that will provide quality postsecondary programs throughout the state at an affordable cost.

However, 61% of students in Illinois leave school with an average debt of $28,424. Illinois colleges and universities are losing students to other states. Is reduced tuition for Illinois schools the answer? Join us for a discussion of this issue and hear the real life experience of our millennial student member, Lucia Williams.
