Higher Education Cost Lowering; Still Higher Than Inflation |.

I stood hand-in-hand with my fellow students from NC State back in late 1990’s making this same case. To see the problem persists begs a serious question. What do you think about this?

  1. It is important to note that the rapid rise in college costs parallels the rapid decline of state support of public higher ed. I would like to see an analysis of college costs that controls for this. The result is a shift from a system in which we, the public, pay the costs of higher ed because it has significant value to ensuring a vibrant democracy, to one in which the individual students bear most of the cost of the system of higher ed. Who’s interests does this shift serve?

    • Ah yes, the fundamental question: is education a public or private good. Evidence suggest the latter, which has implications for what obligations public institutions and their graduates have to the public.
