RE: Tuition is going up because people are willing to pay it.

Reminds me of a Real estate agent in 2004 who told me that housing prices are going up because people are willing to pay for it.

I see some troubling parallels here ( especially when lots of college kids are graduating with humongous tuition debt and not finding jobs whose salaries can pay it down).

“( especially when lots of college kids are graduating with humongous tuition debt and not finding jobs whose salaries can pay it down).”

Largely a lack of trying to get tuition help (grants, scholarships) and not caring how much it costs. It is similar to the ARM mortgage phenomena.

It’s the “big education” cycle:

-Govt makes unlimited low cost loans available to students

-Colleges raise prices to absorb funds

-Colleges pay profs and admins massive salaries

-Profs and admins donate to Democrats

(and repeat)
