The Exorbitant Annual Tuition And Fees Of A Liberal Arts Education
The small liberal arts college of Davidson in North Carolina claims that their commitment to affordability “has never been stronger”, and strives to meet 100 percent of their students calculated financial need entirely with grants and student employment. However, I sincerely doubt that student employment is going to help cover the $58,000+ in various fees over the academic year.
And what will the return-on-investment be for their liberal arts education in this decimated U.S. economy, complete with outsourcing, robotization, automation, drone technology, smartphone apps etc? Something is clearly not right in 2010’s higher education.
