It would be a good thing to look at.Could be a clue. If I'm not mistaking, his administration was about deregulation too.
Although, I think the tuition explosion over the last 20 years is something that I can not comprehend yet.
I went into a state-school (as an out of state payer) 20 years ago, my tuition then is about 30% of what in-state student pays now and about 15% of what an out of state student pays, and that is in CALIFORNIA.
It was more of a point-making tool than anything else, the economic situation/structure , the demographics (including immigration) , ..etc for each state might dictate what kind of a system it chooses.I've looked a bit into the 20 mil and 40 mil European countries for comparisons. I admit it's becoming a bit fastidious ...
Poland and Romania are a bit difficult to take into account: they're still in a reforming proces (they inherited a communist system), they still have economical difficulties, and they have a lack of personnel that it's even bigger than in other countries (the emigration rate of qualified personnel is awful), lack of financement/investissement, aso. For the moment, I would rather dismiss them as examples, or take them as of examples on how things aren't working out.
I'll (maybe) go further with Spain and Netherlands ... later ....
California for example has chosen now to subsidize illegal immigrants. I could attribute many motives to that but this thread is not the place for it.
