Anyway, I stumbled upon a really good article while eating breakfast and thought I'd share. It may not be of interest to everyone, but for those of us who will soon have kids in college it's worth a read.
How college pricing is just like holiday retail sales
As a side note, I find the stuff about retail pricing extremely interesting. When Joseph a. Banks runs these crazy sales, I've always wondered how they can do that and at some point concluded that their real expected price was the sale price and that you were paying massive premiums the rest of the time. They present it as the complete opposite, obviously, and it's brilliant marketing. Anyway, nice to have my suspicions confirmed! I love personal validation.
And what one man calls brilliant marketing, another calls deception.

Starting to starve the beast has to happen. I'm not sure how you do that, though. If you cut funding, then they just raise tuition.
