One pressing issue in this year's gubernatorial race is the high cost of public colleges and universities in Illinois, even for in-state students. We took a look at the states with the highest average tuition for in-state public universities for in-state students.

With information culled from the Chronicle of Higher Education, we give you the ten states with the highest average public school tuition.
