Two regular RT readers are debating college tuition in the discussion thread for this week’s point/counterpoint. Brian Lindholm wrote:
If tuitions are too high, then state legislatures should crack down on state-supported universities, insisting that they embark upon cost-cutting exercises like those businesses periodically perform. And if borrowing is excessive, then the federal government (source of 90% of student loans these days) should tighten up lending standards to reduce excessive borrowing. Those are direct solutions that specifically address the “current crisis in higher education”.
