What can students REALLY do about tuition hikes? Every year students in college or university face tuition hikes. Some just small, others huge.
Tactics used by administration is to announce a massive hike like 20% in the Fall, and then unroll something around 5% the following year.
Alas, higher education will forever have a 'higher cost'. In the grand scheme, education at graduate levels are heavily subsidized by the state. Do you think tuition of 10-40K / student (or more) can really cover all the expenses to run the academy?
Here to stay, higher tuition, coupled with higher taxes, higher medical costs,
but you get a chance to make a higher salary.....hopefully.
