    When CCN explains why the cost of a college education has increased by 500% in the last ten years you will discover the same mismanagement and greed that sunk the banks and housing industry. Multi-million dollar administrative and coaching salaries, tenure (unheard of in other industries) and lavish benefits are all being sucked out of the struggling tax paying parents and their children. How comfortable to leverage the students future to support their excessive culture of elitism and selfishness. How can the academic community continue to justify such increases? When news organizations, parents and students discover where the money is going the academic community will be facing their own college spring awakening. Shame on our millionaire academic leaders. Shame on them for stealing their student’s financial futures. Shame on them for not adjusting to the economic realities the students and their parents face.
