Stop giving universities free tax money and they will have to be more fiscally responsible to attract students.

Whether it's education, healthcare, or whatever, the costs rise much faster when the federal government is paying for it. If the government got out of the education business (including student loans) the price of education would go down dramatically. Then students wouldn't need big loans to pay for their education.

ASU gets most of its money from State taxes and student tuition.
Private universities are not less expensive - even the ones with a large endowment. The ASU charter states that the tuition for a student should be as close to zero as possible! We are not likely to get simple solutions for this mess.
