Horn Book Guide Reviews 2017 Fall

This volume covers the ever-increasing cost of attending college. Oachs examines different theories for the increase, compares costs of private and public institutions, and discusses the student debt crisis and its implications for the future. Statistical data is included when relevant, but much of the information will be quickly dated; photographs and sidebars (many with tiny type) extend the texts. Reading list. Bib., glos., ind.
