"Is College a Ripoff?" @American University

Over the last decades college tuition in America has skyrocketed, increasing faster than medical costs, and at about three times the rate of inflation. In fact, students in private colleges pay around $100/hr to attend lectures (e.g., in a lecture class of 200 people, the University receives $20,000/hour). On April 11, Arvin Vohra, author of Lies, Damned Lies, and College Admissions, will offer his controversial analysis on the current state of American higher education, including:

* The real reasons that college tuition is so high, and the College Bubble
* What most colleges censor from their courses, and why
* The unintended consequences of current financial aid laws
* How college education has deformed high school education
* Public policy initiatives, alternatives, and the future of higher education
