Why has college tuition gone up so much in recent years? Evan Feinberg, President of Generation Opportunity, explains how the federal government has inadvertently caused the tuition increase and discusses ways in which to reverse this trend.


  • For the first time in 65 years, American full-time college enrollment is decreasing
  • College tuition has increased 500% from the 1980s
  • Government regulation and the federal takeover of student loans are the primary reasons for the increase
  • In order for college administrators to stop drastically increasing tuition costs, the federal government must deregulate the federal student loan industry
