The cost/price of college tuition is an excellent example of [unlimited] gubbermint money chasing a rather inelastic supply of college student slots.

Unlimited? If only that were true (ok, I'm also against
unlimited..but if only there was an increase or even
flat level of support..) instead, government support for state schools have
been either slashed or significantly cut back, leaving
schools with no choice but to raise tuition, increase class size,
or create the Coca Cola Wing of this or that building, usually
some combination of the above..leaving parents and
students with higher bills.

With terms like "gubbermind" sounds like you have some pretty
strong views the debating of which belongs in other boards, not
this one...but the above is For the Record on government support for state colleges and universities.

As for private schools, there's some sky high tuitions, and there's
a cost/benefit analysis for parents and students whether this
or that Name is worth the cost..
