Dear all,He was one of 1,300 applicants for 60 positions (eventually class size will double) in the inaugural class at The Commonwealth, according to Dr. Robert M. D’Alessandri, the president and dean. Mr. Allen has a United States Navy scholarship, but for his classmates, the school took $20,000 a year off the tuition, a reduction of about half, as an incentive to take the risk of a new school.---taken from the NYT
What I understand the meaning of the quoted text is that the school exempts his classmates from about half of tuition each year, so the verb took should be takes. Am I right? Thanks.
