Mike Gatley knows that most people assume the Cape-Atlantic League is composed of two types of schools: public and non-public. He says that's not even close to a complete picture. "There are just so many moving parts these days," said Gatley, the athletic director at Mainland Regional High School and the Cape-Atlantic League president. "Public, non-public, choice schools, magnet schools, tech schools. People have no idea how complicated it is. " In the old days - say, five years ago - it was easy to classify high school sports programs in South Jersey into those two tight categories.

Burlington County College will increase its per-credit costs by $5 next year, its first increase since the 2010-11 school year. School administrators said it was necessary to accommodate growth. The total cost per credit, $125.50, will still be the lowest in the state, said president David C. Hespe, a former state commissioner of education. The increase will help fund initiatives, Hespe said. "The first thing is increasing the number of full-time faculty members that we have on staff.

Gloucester County College will increase tuition next year, but the two-year school in Sewell still provides a higher education at the lowest per-credit cost in New Jersey, its administrators say. At the same time, the school of about 6,800 full- and part-time students will increase spending on what it sees as essential programs, said president Frederick Keating. "Initiatives such as our Dual Advantage program, which provides guaranteed admission to several four-year institutions," are one of the reasons for increased costs, Keating said in a statement.

State Sen. Lloyd Smucker (R., Lancaster) has introduced a bill that would allow undocumented immigrant youths who complete high school in Pennsylvania to be eligible for in-state tuition rates at state colleges. "This has the potential to expand the pool of skilled workers and prospective job creators," said Smucker, who modeled his legislation on Maryland's Dream Act, which offers subsidized tuition to undocumented youths who were brought to the United States as young children. While Congress has repeatedly rejected a federal Dream Act, a dozen states have adopted some version of the proposal in recent years, Smucker said.

It took the recession to do it, but it looks like America's colleges and universities are finally coming to their senses when it comes to the ever-increasing tuitions they have been charging students. A study by Moody's Investor Service says the demand for four-year college degrees is softening. Stagnant family incomes and poor job prospects in this economy are leading more young people to choose community college, if they choose college at all. Universities are responding to fewer student applications by freezing or reducing tuition and offering more scholarships.

"Education is a human right," said Katharina Marth, a protest organizer who is studying law at the University of Rostock. "It should be free to everybody.

D EAR HARRY: My wife works for a wonderful employer. Her salary is $50,000, but she has wonderful benefits. She gets 11 percent of her salary put into a pension plan and a 50-percent payment for our two children's college tuition. She has the greatest health plan I have ever seen. She is 54 and in good health. She has a $250,000-term life insurance policy to cover us, because the tuition and health plans do not survive her. I would like her to increase her insurance to $500,000. She can get that for approximately what we are now paying for the $250,000, either from her present carrier or another good company.

With student debt hitting the trillion-dollar mark, outpacing car and credit-card debt, Temple University's announcement of a $100 million fund-raising drive to write down student tuition is welcome. Famous Temple grad Bill Cosby has pitched in with a few videos to help pitch fellow alumni and others. Half of the money would go directly to student aid, and the other half would seed an endowment fund to sustain it. The size of this fund-raising drive, four years of cost-cutting, and a base tuition freeze this year puts Temple in the vanguard of universities tackling the price of a college education.

NEWARK, N.J. - A U.S.-born high school student was wrongfully denied state tuition assistance based on the fact that her mother is an illegal immigrant, a New Jersey appeals court ruled Wednesday. The appellate division of Superior Court determined that residency requirements pertain only to the student, finding that the applicant, identified by her initials, A.Z., was a U.S. citizen who had spent most of her life in New Jersey. The ruling could affect thousands of American-born New Jersey students who were denied college tuition aid based on their parents' immigration status, according to the American Civil Liberties Union and a Rutgers University legal clinic that filed the appeal on A.Z.'s behalf.
