Note to self: save more money for kids’ college funds

I’ve been to the UW campus just a couple of times. Walking through the red square or the quad is such a pleasant feeling. Memories of my college years in Pamplona, Spain, immediately pop into my head. The good stuff of course, not how stressed I used to be about paying the tuition and the expenses of living away from home.
Now our governor is proposing to raise tuition 30 percent in the next two years at the state’s four-year universities. Why aren’t there enough public funds for higher education?
Times reporter Nick Perry addresses that question and more in today’s Q&A about the tuition increase, which is a perfect reminder for me to put more money in my kids’ college accounts.
