GOING FAR AWAY FOR COLLEGE? College Affordability's Bryan O'Keefe picks up an intriguing story.
Marketplace has a very interesting story about another possible alternative to paying $44,000 a year for American higher ed: studying abroad at a prestigious school for a fraction of the costs. As the story points out, the cost of a year at Oxford is only $10,000, which is considerably less expensive than Harvard and Yale and even less expensive than many second rate and third rate colleges.
That's the phenomenon we refer to as "bypass."
