Increases in financial aid have increased tuition rates until they are unaffordable.
As high school seniors throughout America will be receiving acceptance letters to colleges within the next month, it would be nice for parents to meditate on what they are getting for the $20–$50,000 they will pay each year.
It is fascinating to see people accusing others of things that they themselves are doing, especially when their own sins are worse.
