The College Cost Crisis: A Congressional Analysis of College Costs and Implications for America's Higher Education System by John Boehner( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. higher education system is on crisis. Decades of uncontrolled cost increases are pushing the dream of a college education out of reach of needy students. The crisis requires a dramatic solution. This report does not provide solution to the cost crisis nor suggest easy answers to improve the affordability of postsecondary education, but it does explore the college cost crisis, its origins and continued causes, and it begins a dialogue that seeks to find real solutions to the crisis of college cost in the United States. Tuition increases are outpacing the rate of inflation, increases in family income, and increases in financial aid. These cost increases are pricing students and families out of the college market. Tuition increases have outpaced inflation year after year. U.S. citizens, losing patience with higher education Sticker shock, believe that institutions of higher education are not accountable enough to the consumers of higher education. They believe that wasteful spending by college and university management is the number one reason for skyrocketing college costs. The amount of information available to consumers about tuition increases is inadequate, inhibiting the ability of consumers to comparison shop and hold institutions accountable for tuition hikes. While significant tuition increases are the norm, they are not unavoidable. Some colleges have managed to hold tuition increases to a manageable level, or even to reduce tuition. This provides concrete examples that college costs do not have to increase at such a rapid pace. (Sld)

Building a robust national defense by Howard P McKeon( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The power of American values is even greater than its military or economy. However, says Rep. "Buck" McKeon of California, time and again we've seen the Administration reject notions of American exceptionalism and only reluctantly assume the role of the world's lone democratic superpower. Drawing on his experience as the Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, Rep. McKeon describes what this means for winning the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, detaining and prosecuting terrorists, engaging both allies and adversaries, and investing in a robust national defense. He calls for a National Defense Education and Investment Act to increase funding for basic defense research and ensure we maintain America's technological edge
