HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf's proposal to start a major new scholarship program for students at Pennsylvania's state-owned universities spotlit an uncomfortable truth about Pennsylvania's ragged performance on higher education funding.

By just about every measure there is, Pennsylvania is ranked at the bottom in the level of state support for higher education, student debt and affordability of its colleges.

Ken Mash, who is president of the union of faculty members and coaches at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities, says everybody agrees it’s a problem, but nobody has come forward with a solution.
