Higher Education Scam: Why College In The United States Is So Expensive

“The most expensive universities have the least qualified instructors”

(From The Daily Caller)

Universities that offer less faculty compensation, perform less research and have lower tuition rates are more likely to have engaged and effective professors, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis…

…A 2011 Cato Institute study suggested that separating research from the cost of instruction would reveal the true cost of providing an undergraduate education is roughly $8,000 per student.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the least expensive universities, which conduct very little research ($1,283 per student), spend an average of $8,236 per student on instruction.

But surely the quality of instruction delivered by the most expensive universities is better than the most affordable universities?

The answer, shockingly, is no.
