That's a myth. In fact, government loans have not kept up with the cost. The reason why tutiton is sky rocketing is because of demand and extra faculty.

Do you know how much they pay adjunct faculty?

I'll give you a hint...it isn't raising tuition prices.

Adjuncts where I worked got paid 3.5-4k/class they taught.

Most classes are taught by adjuncts and grad students.

OP, you have to put up some sort of argument... making a statement alone isn't enough. Go back, think this through, and present your thoughts in a meaningful manner with supporting theories and/or resources.

What do you think demand is? Willingness to pay. You're a lot more willing to pay for a college education if the government loans you gobs of money for it.
