What are the implications when a country abolishes university tuition fees?

By Brendan O’Malley – Managing Editor. In Commentary, Ariane de Gayardon says introducing free-tuition policies, as New Zealand has most recently done, relies on the unrealistic expectation that governments will be able not only to fund higher education budgets but also consistently increase those budgets.

HomeBy Greg Toppo. A new working paper takes a look at the so-called Bennett hypothesis, first proposed in 1987 by former U.S. education secretary William Bennett. The analysis finds that in the case of a veterans’ benefit enacted after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the principle seems to hold true, at least in this case, for just one sector: private for-profit institutions.
