Why Is College So Expensive?
This is a great article for understanding some of the reasons behind the high cost of college in the US. Most notably, this paragraph stands out to us: "The two main drivers of the rising cost of tuition are reduced state funding and the incentive for tuition raises as an unrestricted revenue to benefit colleges," meaning colleges can choose to spend tuition money however they wish, Heflin says. "States and local communities are spending less per student. Someone has to take on that cost, and unfortunately it's been the student."
