Yes. The cost of higher education has increased so much that students of today have an extremely hard time paying them. As like everything else in the US the supply and demand costs have skyrocketed while our pay checks have virtually stayed the same since the 1980's. The quality of the education MUST become better at ALL places of education. We are severely lacking when it comes to competing with the rest of the world. We need to study what the top 5 countries in education are doing and cooperate that into our system. Americans will and are losing out in the global world to high paying jobs due to lack of proper education. This needs to change. The supply and demand senerio or vise versa in this case. Does not mean that schools should demand so much money just because there are more students then there were 20 to 50 years ago. Education is essential and should be free for all to get an education. Private colleges/universities should also get an overhaul on their costs.
