On August 17, Jay P. Greene, Ph.D., Goldwater Institute Senior Fellow and head of the Department of Education Reform at the University of Arkansas, will discuss his new findings on waste at American universities.
Jay has uncovered astonishing excess at our very own Arizona State University. Between 1993 and 2007, the number of full-time administrators per 100 students increased by a staggering 94 percent. And inflation-adjusted administrative spending per student increased by 46 percent. These findings will be released the same day in a new study titled “Administrative Bloat at American Universities: The Real Reason for High Costs in Higher Education.”
Author of Education Myths: What Special-Interest Groups Want You to Believe About our Schools - and Why It Isn’t So, Jay’s education policy research has been cited routinely by the U.S. Supreme Court.
On August 17, please join us for refreshments and a candid discussion with Jay Greene on the hidden forces behind the growing expense of a college education.
