Technology plays a big role in higher education

Tennessee higher education officials say they'll be forced to continue raising tuition if the state doesn't provide adequate funding to help with costs at their institutions.

Officials met with Gov. Haslam at a higher education budget hearing on Friday.

Officials said there hasn't been a basic increase in state funding in about 30 years. They've formed review committees to examine the financial picture of their systems going forward.

The heads of the Board of Regents and the University of Tennessee Board say something needs to be done because it's unfair to keep putting the cost burden on students and their families.

Haslam said the systems have a valid argument and that he and the Legislature will examine reports from their reviews.
