Little clarity on just how much tuition covers

University of Minnesota Professor Bill Gleason says in a Strib column that it’s been hard even for him to find out what portion of a student’s education is covered by tuition.

We need to identify the true cost of education so that we can, by subtraction, identify what are not educational costs and cut them if necessary. This is the first step in answering the question: Why has the cost of tuition at the U risen so much faster than inflation?
