Congress debated the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965, the primary legislation chartering the federal government’s role in U.S. postsecondary education. The previous reauthorization happened in 2008 and the resulting legislation, totaling more than 400 pages, gives Congress many issues to tackle. This time, one of the most pressing concerns is the rising price of college, which has created a crisis of affordability for many American students and their families. In this context, the author draws some insights and analysis around the college affordability.
