The Iowa Board of Regents is considering reallocating funding from The University of Iowa to Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa.  The proposal says because U of I has fewer in-state students, the other universities have more students paying lower tuition.  Iowa Public Radio’s Dean Borg reports that some high school students say they were overlooked the by the state universities recruiting efforts.
