Colleges Must Face Reality and Recognize Opportunity in the Economic Downturn
Knecht, Ron
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n18 pA128 Jan 2009
Because of the worst economic downturn since World War II, many state governments now expect revenues to fall in coming years--resulting in less public spending on higher education. Certain state-revenue reforms could moderate the effects of economic slumps on colleges. In this article, the author examines the growth of public spending on education. He argues that higher-education institutions must face reality and become more productive and cost-effective even in an economic downturn.
