Tuition equity is now law in Oregon.  Governor John Kitzhaber signed House Bill 2787 into law Tuesday, giving children of illegal immigrants who graduate from Oregon high schools the same state-subsidized tuition legal residents pay.  The Governor says every Oregonian deserves a shot at the American dream, and public education is the vehicle by which that dream is fulfilled.  Critics say the state should not be subsidizing college educations for people who violate immigration laws.  But the Governor says tuition equity will help Oregon capitalize on the investment already made in these students in our K-12 system.  The law takes effect starting next school year.   Oregon is now one of 15 states with tuition equity laws.
