Not strictly conference related but in the news a lot today so thought I'd share it with you. The news item is - "concerns raised about the increase in tuition costs in the US as they rise above the rate of inflation". We hear about US tuition fees a lot, so I thought it might be interesting to share the following figures with you - they aren't all they might seem after all.
Ave tuition costs:
Private 4yr universities - $23,712 per year (up 6.3%)
Public 4yr universities - $6,135 per year (up 6.6%)
Public 2yr community colleges - $2,361 per year (up 4.2%)
