Overview

This book details the findings and recommendations proposed by The National Commission on the Cost of Higher Education, a Congressional commission appointed to make proposals aimed at controlling the cost of higher education. These recommendations call for action by Congress, by institutions of higher education, by state and local governments, and by American families. Grouped into five categories, these goals propose: greater institutional cost control and productivity, improved institutional accountability to the general public, new Government approaches to academic regulation, well-coordinated and efficient accrediting processes that relate institutional productivity to effectiveness in learning, and for Congress to continue the existing student aid programs and simplify and improve the financial aid delivery system.
