Title:The price of knowledge 2004: Access and student finance in Canada
Organization:Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation
Short Description:This volume is the second edition of The Price of Knowledge.
Annotation:This volume is the second edition of The Price of Knowledge. There is no single storyline linking the various sections of this book. Students, policies and the institutions that affect them are too diverse to be easily summarized. There are very few areas of access and student finance where cause and effect are linked in an easy or straightforward manner. There are, however, a few themes which emerge from the data in this volume. Most of the news on access and student finance is good, however tuition and fees continue to rise and student debt levels are also increasing.
