Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Complacency about the strength of higher education greatly threatens future prosperity and the quality of life in the United States. Financing American Higher Education identifies the principal challenge of broadly increasing educational attainment, and it offers a clear and encyclopedic view of the policies and practices that must change to meet it. Political and educational leaders of the 21st century need to read this book.” — Paul E. Lingenfelter, president, State Higher Education Executive Officers 

“The U.S. higher education financing system faces serious challenges. This very readable book looks clearly at these challenges, and it is packed with data and a deep understanding of the history of higher education in America. The authors’ agenda for change deserves serious consideration by anyone interested in the future of higher education.” — Robert Archibald, chancellor professor of economics, College of William and Mary 

“American higher education faces an accountability revolution driven by cost, competition, technology, and globalization. Financing American Higher Education presents the historical context, the current policy challenges, and a future agenda for this vital sector of the American economy. If you care about how our nation invests in our future human capital, you will find this book indispensable.” — Charles Kolb, president, Committee for Economic Development
