Globe editorial: more funding for higher ed

FRAMINGHAM

A Globe editorial today showcases Framingham State College as it calls for more funding for higher education.

College president Thomas Flanagan says he's heard the same story from more than one student. The college wasn't their first choice. They had to go there because of money or other reasons. But over time they have come to love the school.

With small classes, attentive faculty, and ample opportunities to lead and learn, the college should be a first choice for more students, Flanagan said.

Now the state needs a governor who can make Framingham and other state schools shine, the editorial says.
