MPR's PoliGraph: Dayton's tuition statement not entirely true

Dayton speaking

MPR’s PoliGraph says that Gov. Mark Dayton’s statement on higher ed funding in his State of the State address yesterday —

“Tuition in our state’s two-year public colleges has risen to the third-highest in the nation; tuitions in our four-year universities are among the top-ten highest.”

is misleading.

PoliGraph says Dayton was looking at averages when he made that statement — and should have said so. Individual schools, it says, don’t fit his rankings.
