Another sign of the times

College May Become Unaffordable for Most in U.S.

There's definitely some food for thought in that article. One passage that caught my eye:
Mr. Callan, for his part, urged a reversal in states’ approach to higher-education financing.

“When the economy is good, and state universities are somewhat better funded, we raise tuition as little as possible,” he said. “When the economy is bad, we raise tuition and sock it to families, when people can least afford it. That’s exactly the opposite of what we need.”
Yet another example of disaster capitalism in action.
