Public-College Tuition Rise Is Largest in 3 Decades.
Farrell, Elizabeth F.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v50 n10 pA1,A35 Oct 2003
The cost of attending public, four-year and two-year colleges surged at its highest rate in 3 decades, rising 14 percent over the previous year, although financial aid is up, too. Research shows that state budget cutbacks in education typically result in colleges' charging higher tuition. Higher education officials are expressing concern about the amount of debt students and their families must assume to pay for college. (SM)
