I thought that regarding undergraduate tuition as ludicrously inflated was uncontroversial. (Indeed, my alma mater has increased tuition by over 275% in 15 years and eliminated any claims of being a good value from its marketing collateral.) But when the New York Times is publishing op-eds arguing that $50k private high school tuition is unsustainable — and that the solution is for these schools to raise tuition — perhaps my views are more radical than I thought.
