Last year's budget increased tuition and saw no teacher raises. Will the trend continue this year?
Anne Arundel Community College officials will begin parsing the details of its 2013-2014 school year budget at a work session on Tuesday morning. During last year's budget season, the college's Board of Trustees chose to raise its tuition rates to balance its budget and help compensate for a declining student population.

As a result, the college stands to take in $300,000 less in revenue this year than projected. Lindsay said they were analyzing what could be done to curb the trend and move forward. At a meeting in September, Trustee Arthur …
