Tuition Rising: Why College Costs So Much


What makes Tuition Rising so valuable and so much fun is its combination of facts, analysis, and administrative war stories. So, for instance, the importance to a college of national rankings, like U.S. News and World Report, is supported by careful econometric analysis (kept in the background, as are all technical jargon and argument), put under a microscope to understand the reasons for their often-quirky rankings, and then followed into Cornell's business school to see how 'managing to the rankings'--the collegiate version of 'teaching to the test'--can make sensible university-wide administration very difficult.
