Making or Unmaking?

Posted By: Dick Schutz on August 19, 2011
It is indisputable that the cost of higher education has increased markedly over four decades and has dramatically increased in the last decade. This has indeed created hardships for all but high-income families.

But this hasn't resulted in the "Unmaking" of colleges and universities. In general, it seems to me that both public and private institutions are thriving and for-profit institutions are doing quite well financially, if not functionally.

Easing the financial burden on students involves income redistribution, and we know how well that is working out these days.
