Increasing financial aid funding would be more effective than tuition discounts

Especially as many colleges and universities announce an online or otherwise disrupted college experience, some have pushed for tuition discounts. A Brookings expert argues that tuition discounts are not the right approach, as they would likely reduce the future availability of financial aid. Universities and colleges are spending considerably more to prepare to operate amidst the pandemic, which may prompt future cuts to financial aid and make college less accessible for low-income students. Universities, such as Syracuse University, that have increased tuition have allowed for increases to financial aid. #covid-19 #education
