Cavanaugh, John C.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n27 pA34 Mar 2009
Government support for higher education has received more attention lately. The recent debate over the inclusion of colleges in the stimulus package put two aspects of higher education in the spotlight: the importance of attending college, and the role of higher education as an enormous economic driver. In this article, the author looks at the trend in education over the past decade. The author stresses the need of an informed dialogue between legislators and public higher education that pays attention to and learns from systems that have increased quality while reducing operating costs and limiting tuition increases.
