The money quote

Under a reciprocity agreement, Wisconsin students can attend the University of Minnesota for about what they would pay for in-state tuition at the University of Wisconsin. Unfortunately for the University of Minnesota, it costs much less to attend school in Wisconsin than it does in Minnesota.

According to an article in today's Star Tribune, "U threatens to quit tuition reciprocity deal," "'It's the goal of our governor to keep education affordable for Wisconsin residents,' said Connie Hutchison, executive secretary of the Wisconsin Higher Educational Aids Board."

U of M junior Ross Skattum, an anthropology major from Argyle, Wisconsin, has the "emperor has no clothes" quote of the day:
I think the policy is kind of unfair to Minnesota residents, but instead of blaming Wisconsin, they need to look closer at why they pay more.

On Wisconsin!
