Required reading: Elizabeth Warren's book "The Two-Income Trap." Throwing more money at higher ed, whether through increased taxes, student loans, or any other means, simply encourages spending and tuition increases.
The solution is to make the tough choices. Are stadiums and athletic programs really needed? Is there duplication of programs across different institutions? Is administration bloated? Are tenured faculty any better than contract teachers from the private sector? As long as we add money without increasing efficiency the system will continue to drain the wallets of parents who want a good education for their children.
