Why Does College Cost So Much?
Robert B. Archibald - 2010-11-17
Goodreads Rating
This book looks at the rising cost of college education in the US and challenges the common belief that it's due to dysfunctional behavior in the industry. Instead, the authors argue that it's a result of economic growth and changing wage structures. While acknowledging the problem of affordability, they explore policies that can preserve the quality of education while increasing access for all.
