On Thursday, Oct. 7th , students, faculty, staff and other supporters of public higher education concluded a 100 mile march across the state to advocate for greater funding for public higher education at the State House in Boston. The day has been designated a National Day to Defend Public Education, and similar rallies took place across the country. After the rally, PHENOM organizers delivered signed petitions calling on legislators to increase state support for public higher education to the national average and to decrease student costs to a similar national level.
Massachusetts spends just 3.9 percent of its state budget on public higher education, currently ranking it number 46 of 50 states in public higher education spending per capita. The state has cut funding proportionally to higher education by the largest amount of any state over the last five years, according to the PHENOM release. Among states which spend more per citizen on public higher education are Mississippi, Alabama and Alaska.
