The New York Times Explains the Cost of College Tuition

Ez College AID offers a solution to the recent report from the New York Times that states college tuition costs have quadrupled.

Ez College AID has found a solution for the problem stated in a recent report from the New York Times, entitled, “The Real Reason College Tuition Costs So Much”. This report did not leave much hope for families who hope to send a child to college. However, hope can be found.

The New York Times article reflected about costs in tuition that have rose from $11.1 billion in 1960 to $48.2 billion in 1975. It further states that while state funding increased by 390% as of 1980, it did not decrease the cost of tuition, and in fact it increased tuition costs.

The increase of college administrators and exceedingly high salaries is noted, along with the rise in inflation in regard to why it costs so much to attend college today. Despite financial aid, many people are unable to attend college. Many who do are left with exorbitant student loans, $25,000 on average that become a hardship to pay off.

The New York Times article states, "What cannot be defended, however, is the claim that tuition has risen because public funding for higher education has been cut. Despite its ubiquity, this claim flies directly in the face of the facts."

Overall, the “The Real Reason College Tuition Costs So Much” paints a grim picture for hopeful college students throughout the United States. Fortunately, there are options.
