February 1, 2012

Fay Vincent, former commissioner of Major League Baseball and a Board of Trustee member at Carleton College, penned a Feb. 1 opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) titled "Price Controls for Harvard." In the piece, Vincent lays out the myriad of problems associated with implementing tuition price caps in American higher education, including merit vs. need-based financial aid, schools with large vs. small endowments, and the cost borne by the U.S. government to implement such a program will be passed along to students and families.
