Eau Claire (WQOW) - We all know college can be
expensive. One group says too many students are being left out because of finances,
and it wants that changed.
A commission made up of educational
leaders has been examining the state's financial aid program. This week, it released a report, calling for
more aid in the next state budget.
According to the report, last year, more than 76,000 students who were
eligible for financial aid did not receive
need-based grants because state funding ran out. State Superintendent Tony
Evers was in Eau Claire
"One of the key
goals in the state of Wisconsin
for everybody is to make sure everybody is as educated as possible. Absolutely, an increase in financial aid is a real important thing. We have a lot of people
who have needs and we need to meet those needs," says State Superintendent
UW-Eau Claire Junior,
Bryan Krause, says, "I got a lot of financial aid my freshman year and so
that was really helpful but the last two years I haven't go nearly as much as I
would need. I'm not really sure how I am going to pay for next
The commission recommends changing
the law, it would like to see certain financial aid programs increase each time
tuition goes up.
