More for the money

    Things couldn’t be worse for public higher education in the U.S., says a report from Kiplinger. The magazine ranked public colleges according to what students get in return for their money. Several area schools made the top 100.

    NBC10 broke down the regional colleges that made the cut, including six in Pennsylvania, three in New Jersey and one in Delaware.

    Among the regional schools, the College of New Jersey comes in highest at No. 21, and Millersville scored lowest at No. 99.

    The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill took the No. 1 spot for the tenth year in a row.
