“The University of Puerto Rico risks becoming the next casualty in the commonwealth’s fiscal crisis…”
As Puerto Rico sinks into fiscal chaos, debt creditors try to cash their bonds by suing the best university in Puerto Rico. The University of Puerto Rico is a public higher education institution since 1903. It provides degrees in most areas of studies at an affordable cost for residents and non-residents of Puerto Rico. The University of Puerto Rico is one of the most important resources left for those Puerto Ricans that believe that education is the key to personal and national growth. It is absurd to require that poor students pay with money they did not agree to, or anticipate. While Puerto Rico is engulfed in violence and unemployment, those studying should be honored, not treated like expendables.
