Out of the box Possibilities

As have notified, tuition fee increase for one of the premier state university in the country would have to be implemented. I suspect, this scenario would have gargantuan effects not only for ongoing and incoming UP students, rather for the whole state/private colleges/universities all over the country.Possible effects on the economy might also be seen.

First, increase in the tuition fee of UP might trigger the increase of tuition fees of other state/private colleges/Universities. This is because School standards issues are at stake and everybody wants to have high standards.Or other schools/universities might just take advantage of the fact that,like UP, they also want to have a possible improved facilities even if its not really necessary. Who are at the loosing end?

Second, increase in the tuition fee of UP might contribute a significant figure to the increasing unemployment rate in the country. This is because UP, although diverse, majority of UP students belong to below poverty threshold level social stratification. Thus, ongoing and incoming students who are going to be affected with the increase and who are competitive might stop schooling because of the scenario. What will happen to these students?

Third, increase in tuition fee of UP might lead to the demoralization of supposedly incoming students to choose UP as a possible avenue for higher education. Thus, might lead "supposedly incoming students" to choose private universities which are at Par with UP standards.What will happen then to UP?

Solutions? I believe, as one of the desperate out-of-the-box moves, UP should ask for tie-ups to private entities for a possible sponsorships on its projects and researches so as to lessen the burden of incoming UP students who are indeed carrying a greater weight in the UP tuition fee increase. This out-of-the box solution however, might lessen the image of UP as a state or partly government owned university.
