Summary:

Abstract of a new research report on the correlation between declining levels of public funding for public colleges and universities and the increase in private-sector options. The author concludes, "the future tertiary market will not be the result of a well thought out policy at the national or state levels, but a quasi-free market result that will foster lower quality providers and fail to meet national goals for increasing the educational attainment level of Americans."
