What You Get for the Money

Writing an article for the New York Times, David Brooks questioned the ever-increasing tuition in many American universities. 

There’s an atmosphere of grand fragility hanging over America’s colleges. The grandeur comes from the surging application rates, the international renown, the fancy new dining and athletic facilities. The fragility comes from the fact that colleges are charging more money, but it’s not clear how much actual benefit they are providing. (Education News.org)

I think he makes a valid point; if you're going to school to earn an advanced degree, do you really want to be paying for new construction projects and athletic facilities? The price tag of an advanced degree used to include things like that, but you don't have to subject yourself to the gross expenditures of institutions interested in increasing their prestige. 

The College Network's Comprehensive Learning Modules are designed to give you all of the information you need to earn college credit, without having to foot the bill for a university's desire to increase its land holdings or improved athletic facilities - things that most students, especially working adults, won't be able to take advantage of.

Research The College Network and learn more about how much you can save money and earn an advanced degree or certificate.
