Today, the University of Wisconsin System’s Board of Regents approved a fee increase that would affect college students across the state. In response, NextGen Wisconsin State Youth Director George Olufosoye made the following statement:

“Today’s fee increase is the result of Republicans in Madison playing politics with our education. Wisconsin students should not have to foot the bill for Scott Walker’s massive cuts to higher education — and we need elected officials who will focus on easing the burden of paying for college, not exacerbating it. The cost of attending college is a top concern for young people across the state, and that’s why we are mobilizing the youth vote against politicians like Governor Walker who do not stand up for the needs of our students.”
