This Is What Is Driving Up College Tuition Costs

By The Common Constitutionalist

Have you noticed that higher education is the only industry in America, other than maybe the “renewable energy” industry, that never gets any cheaper? Businesses in every other industry must compete for customers by cost cutting and innovating, allowing them to often offer a better product for less money.  Yet big education can continue to raise the cost of a college education almost recklessly without incurring the wrath of either their patrons or the unwashed 99%, who protest the runaway cost of every other “big” industry.  Ever wonder why that is and why the 99% unwashed protest class leaves them alone?

These are also referred to as “free tuition” programs for low income students.  This all sounds great, until you realize that someone has to pay the tuition, as nothing is truly free.
