It's the taxpayers who are picking up the tab for free tuition at Pellissippi State (and other two-year colleges and technical schools) including the 10% increase next year because the state is not funding higher education as it should. I am not convinced this is what is best for the students, especially the many who need remedial classes and can't graduate in two years.
