Editorial from The Aegis | December 26, 2013
The term "structural deficit" seems to have crept into fairly common usage among some people who work in bureaucracies. In Maryland state government, it has been part of the parlance for going on a dozen or more years. It rose to prominence when the governor and the General Assembly started looking at the relationship between projected tax income and anticipated spending growth in various programs and came to the conclusion that program expenses were growing more quickly than state tax revenues.

Harford Community College students would see tuition rise $12 per credit hour under the school's proposed operating budget for next year, while Carroll Community College wants to raise tuition $5 per credit hour. Officials at the Harford school said they need to close a structural deficit and to offset flat state and county funding. Their proposed $47.8 million operating budget was given to the members of the HCC Board of Trustees at their most recent monthly meeting on Dec. 10. The proposed budget includes an increase of about $800,000, or 2 percent compared to this year's spending level of $47 million, but the tuition increase amounts to a 7.6 percent increase for county residents who attend HCC. The $12 increase would raise the tuition per credit hour for Harford County residents from $92 to $104, with similar increases for out-of-county and out-of-state students to $191 and $278 per credit hour, respectively.

SALISBURY - The student government president at the University of Maryland, College Park criticized a report yesterday that suggests the state's public universities impose financial penalties on scholars who take too many classes. "It will stunt the intellectual and professional development of some of the state's most promising [students]," said Aaron Kraus, a senior at the University of Maryland. "In the end, your logic is flawed." The 16-point report, which was released at the system Board of Regents meeting yesterday, recommends that most degree programs be limited to 120 credit hours, what a full-time student would take over a four-year period.

Administrators at Carroll Community College are seeking a tuition increase for the 2003-2004 school year. The increased costs that accompany expanding programs, and an enrollment that is increasing while state subsidies are declining, are the reasons behind the request for a tuition increase of $3 per credit hour, school officials said yesterday. That increase would raise tuition to $82 per credit hour. The increase would amount to about $50 a semester for a typical full-time student, bringing tuition for about 14 credit hours to about $1,150 a semester, college officials said.

The spending package covers the 2002-2003 fiscal year.

A Evening Sun story yesterday on community college tuition misstated the reduction in state aid to Maryland community colleges, which amounts to a 25 percent drop.The story also mistakenly compared the new tuition rate of $48 a credit hour at Baltimore County community colleges with rates no longer in effect elsewhere. The correct rates for community colleges in the following counties are: Anne Arundel, $54; Harford, $56; Howard, $53; and Frederick, $56.The Evening Sun regrets the errors.

RAISING high school graduation requirements is a familiar theme, one that seems particularly relevant this time of year. Carroll County is the latest to consider raising the bar, increasing the number of required credits to 25, from the state minimum of 21. That would force more of the district's seniors to take challenging courses up to graduation, the school board says. But the board also admits that 95 percent of county students already meet that standard. So where's the extra hurdle to elevate (and motivate)

Howard Community College officials had to do a bit of belt-tightening last night to get their budget in line with one proposed by County Executive James N. Robey. Robey is asking the County Council to approve a 7.2 percent increase in HCC's operating budget, but that's not as much as officials had hoped for. The school's board of trustees requested 10.9 percent. Trustees decided last night to make up the difference - $442,800 - by trimming the number of new positions and shaving about a third of a percent from the salary increase they planned to give instructors.
