California colleges saw 32% tuition hikes in one year thanks to a policy not unlike those being proposed in Oregon. As a full-time college student, an increase of $2000 per year for tuition will greatly compromise my accessibility to higher education.
Why do I have to foot the bill for someone else's mistake? I want accountability and transparency, and the ability to question my school's decisions. I do not think that is something that a deregulated educational institution can do for me. Students and their families (for those of us who are lucky enough to have families that can help) are the ones paying for tuition, so why is the education system not working for us?
There must be other ways for improvement besides deregulation and increasing tuition fees.
