Making College Free in Wisconsin
Sara Goldrick-Rab and Nancy Kendall, associate professors of educational policy studies at UW-Madison, have been working on a paper detailing a plan that would reallocate the financial aid money spent at for-profit universities and private universities back to the public sector, Goldrick-Rab said.
“Its not right for the University of Phoenix to charge students $25,000 a year and pay for it all with financial aid that came from taxpayers,” she said. “So we take all that money and simply redistribute it in the public system, and it turns out we have more than enough money. Not long ago IHE had a piece discussing the similar plans being discussed in Tennessee, Oregon, and Mississippi.
