Tri-County Times: The real reason college now costs so much

According to the Michigan League for Public Policy (MLPP), from 2003 to 2015, tuition at almost every Michigan university more than doubled, with some increasing by more than 150 percent. The average tuition for a student attending a state university is $11,991 per year, the sixth highest in the country and second highest in the Midwest. If tuition matched the rise of inflation, tuition would have only been 20.4 percent higher than in 2003. Aug 18, 2017 — Tri-County Times
