Indiana gets F in college affordability

The Star discusses a recent report that gave Indiana an F for a grade in college affordability. Evidently college tuition costs have risen faster than inflation, endangering student access to higher education.

If it is any consolation, the article goes on to say 42 other states flunked too.

This has been an issue since the beginning of education.

Higher education has always been about excluding students. If it is not by cost, it is by testing standards. It is just too bad there are so many rich who are unworthy of a higher education and so many poor who could really go some where if they could afford it.

Those who are truly gifted get in no matter what the economic issue is.

It would not be a higher education if everyone could get in.
