A Defense for Diversity: More Colleges for More Students.
Greene, Estelle, Ed.
Regional Spotlight, v8 n2 pl-5 Nov/Dec73
Unless aid programs are given more direction and funding, and unless an immediate program is initiated to make public and private tuitions competitive, the trend toward secularization of American higher education by default will continue. The process is harmful to both private and public colleges from a philosophical point of view as well as from an economic angle. For the state systems to bail out the private colleges by absorbing them is extremely expensive as a total solution to the problem of affording private colleges. While the main issue--ending the low-tuition policy--is considered to be against the best interests of state institutions and against those of many students, failure to deal with the volatile proposal may result in the continued loss of many private institutions, to the detriment of both sectors of higher education.
