State lawmakers and teachers met today/Thursday in Jefferson City to tackle the issue of rising college costs. Lee McGuire reports from the state capital.

Education officials from throughout Missouri say they're concerned that college will soon become unaffordable. And early next year, a new state committee will begin looking at why that's happening.

William Troutt chaired a national commission that looked at the rising cost of higher education last summer.

Troutt says no matter what happens at the state level, it's still important for parents to start planning early for their kids' college educations. In Jefferson City, Lee McGuire, KMOX News.


The Carnahan administration is launching an effort aimed at bringing down the rising cost of higher education. Lee McGuire reports from Jefferson City.

Governor Carnahan says he wants to make going to school less expensive.

And for the next year a panel of teachers, lawmakers and parents will look at why tuition at most of the state's colleges and universities is going up faster than inflation.
