    “We sympathize somewhat with the schools’ concerns.” TAI

    As do I, but to me those are mostly shambolic excuses for an industry looking to avoid transparency and accountability. If institutions are going to continue to collect federal loan and aid dollars, then they need to be open with the gov’t whom is feeding those dollars and is trying to give spenders of those dollars more power in the market.

    Public release of the actual cost of colleges and the actual values of their degrees should terrify the private colleges. It is likely to be as financially destructive as the publication of the “dealer’s cost” books were to the auto dealers, because it dramatically reduces the information asymmetry in the market.
