Higher education increasingly unaffordable

Increased access to higher education was responsible for lifting many post-WWII working class folks into the newly minted "middle" class. Of course it is only a coincidence that the same policies that rewarded the ultra-rich over the last 30+ years and eroded the real income of everyone else would now lead to the increasing lack of affordability in higher education and thus to the erosion of opportunities for the middle class.

Yep. Just a coincidence.
"The nation's colleges and universities have become less affordable for students and their families since the early 1990s," said the report. "This year continues the trend in deteriorating college affordability in the majority of states."
