The Hechinger Report: College spending comes under closer scrutiny

The Hechinger Report: College spending comes under closer scrutiny. “The American Council of Trustees and Alumni on Wednesday launched a site that makes it easy to track how your hard-earned tuition dollars are spent… It’s geared toward college trustees, lawmakers and policy wonks, who can use the site’s data to lobby for or against government spending for higher education or to compare their institution to others. But parents and students can take advantage of it as well. It’s a quick way to figure out not only how much a school costs but also how much of that cost is actually spent on classroom instruction.”
