Why the price tag of a college degree continues to rise - Jeff Selingo, Washington Post

Every year, researchers at the Delta Cost Project, which is run by the American Institutes for Research, attempt to make sense of higher education spending by explaining in detailed reports where the money to pay for college comes from and where it’s spent. Its latest report was released this month. Here are two key reasons its researchers said colleges costs continue to rise even in an era of low inflation: 1. Students demand more services outside the classroom and colleges are providing more amenities to attract applicants. 2. Students are shouldering much more of the cost of their degree at public colleges and universities. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2016/01/22/why-the-price-tag-of-a-college-degree-continues-to-rise/
