A Case for Low Tuition.
Leslie, Larry L.
This document presents ideas and arguments concerning the concept of low tutition. Part 1 discusses the present state and future promises in regard to tuition pricing. It is suggested that tuitions are rising because the costs of higher education are rising. Also higher education is losing in the competition for public resources; however the reports of the various national groups studying the financing of higher education have favored increases. The second part discusses the rationale generally offered by those who support higher tuition, the extent to which the recommendations of the national reports are being carried out, and the effects of these recommendations on institutions and students. Finally, the critical importance of low tuition to the survival of postsecondary education is suggested. (MJM)
