Gordon, Grey, and Aaron Hedlund.Accounting for the Rise in College Tuition. w21967 Vol.2016. EconLit.Web.
This journaldiscusses on why college tuition has risen so much since the past few years. Italso measures other factors that affect the way colleges are setting theirtuition fees for the students trying to enroll into a college. It furtherexplains on how college loans have contributed to tuition inflations.I think thatthis journal provides a great deal of information regarding the recent rise incollege tuition. It shows a lot of research done that backs up the statementsit makes.
It also uses graphs to make the whole problem easier to understandand makes it more detailed. I also think this source is good for my paperbecause it gives an approximate figure of how much money an average studentattending a university would need to pay to attend. These are very closefigures as I also am a student at a university, my cost of attendance is close tothe estimated cost shown in this journal.CitationSAMUELS, ROBERT.
