Free Tuition Debates Continue in Scotland

Families of American college students have bore the burden of increasing tuition fees throughout recent years and now students in England and Scotland face the same challenges.

Beginning in September 2012 colleges will have a cap of £9,000, or about $15,000, to charge students per year.
