The cost of higher education has been rising more rapidly than the rate of inflation or the growth of family incomes for decades. Cost factors, according to the Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance, are preventing almost half of college-qualified high school graduates from attending a four-year institution. This paper identifies the dollar value of human capital formation provided by educational attainment throughout varying countries, both for the individual and for the specified nation, and discusses the dilemmas faced by various nations.
