"Last week's The Economist headlined 'The College-Cost Calamity,' predicting a 'hurricane' from the 'bubble' created by higher education's rising long-term debt and student debt reaching a 'record $1 trillion.'" Newman University President Noreen Carrocci writes in the Huffington Post. "What is bothersome about both types of articles is the 'one size fits all' rendering of U.S. higher education. Community colleges, four-year public, four-year private nonprofit, and two-to-four-year for-profit are all very different entities. Moreover, each sector has variety within it."
