The two main sources of revenue for public colleges and universities are state appropriations and tuition....   [tags: Higher Education ]

Boot Camps and Juvenile Crime - Boot Camps and Juvenile Crime Five years ago, responding to an increase in serious juvenile crime, the state of Maryland initiated one of the nation's largest boot camp programs for teenage criminals.
