College: A Too Expensive Neccesity
This was written before the current economic collapse, and people's financial worries have only gotten more severe. Is college education too expensive? Do students and parents get enough education and long-term earning power for the tens of thousands of dollars a year that they pay? Many Americans think not. Public Agenda asks Americans what they think about the high cost of higher education., and the NY Times comments as well. (And see this polemical piece by an angry parent in the Wall Street Journal).
