Virginia tuition price increases

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Virginia state tuition price increases are outpacing the rise in family incomes.

A study of the state's 15 public and 24 private schools found administrative costs are rising faster than instructional spending.

The report by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni shows that tuition and fees at 17 schools total almost half of Virginians' median household income.
