This section contains annotations of 15 publications. The third section covers the debate on low tuition versus high tuition/financial aid, along with governmental, institutional, student, and family roles in financing higher education. Annotations of five publications are provided. The document concludes with a list of 15 articles, 9 books, and 7 reports. (SW)
