Public Skeptical About How Colleges Spend Their Money

  A new national poll released by the National Center For Public Policy And Higher Education reveals that over half of the respondents thought colleges could spend less and still maintain a high quality education. Sixty percent thought colleges care more about their bottom line than they do about educating students.

In 2000 31% of Americans said college is necessary, but now 55% do. However, only 28% believe most qualified students get to attend college. This poll suggests colleges need to be more transparent about how they spend money, and if it is going to frills like fancy student centers. For more on spending patterns see The Delta Project
