I've almost read the entire thing and still no actual retort other then "Most experts conclude there is no link between student aid and tuition going up". I guess if you keep saying it enough times...it will make it true.
All one needs is to use is observation. If you pump more money into the system...prices go up because money is soo easily available, therefore less worth. If you make higher education more easily accessible through Fed grants and guaranteed loans...universities respond by hiking up tuition. 1) because of inflation and 2) because they can. If you're gonna give them more 'students' to teach, they're gonna give you (and the students themselves later on) a higher price to pay for that service, so they can pay their professors and staff more money for teaching bigger classrooms of students.
What you're also doing is devaluing the degree itself. That articles says that "63 percent of U.S. jobs will require some form of postsecondary education". Of course they will but why is that? It's because of the Govt. A 'free" high School diploma is now almost worthless. Bachelor degrees will follow suit.
Pretty soon you're gonna have to go to school an additional 10 to 15 years...just to stand out from the rest of the crowd and get paid for a job that you could've gotten with a High School diploma... decades ago.
1_Cap over and out.
you still haven't provided any proof of this. there's a general consensus that what you say is not true. it's not like it's coming from a single source. nice try though..
