According to this report (5 page PDF), "students are starting to get the message as more enroll in high-demand, high-paying fields of study but momentum is hindered by rising tuition and an inflexible system." programs leading to higher-paying jobs are beginning to cost more as tuiotion fees rise. Also, "the simple reality is that the current education system is not flexible enough to fully accommodate the needs of today’s students.... The system ought to be flexible enough to combine passion and practicality. A much higher level of collaboration between colleges and universities is clearly needed."
