Conceptual Iissues in the Financing of Higher Education

2006. No. 3. P. 57–67 [issue contents]
This article analyzes the present state of affairs in the funding of higher education. The current system of funding is the result of reforming a system that dates back to the 1950s. The reasons that made the reforms necessary are shown, as well as the consequences of the reforms. The myth of free higher education is shown to be unproductive. The grounds for introducing tuition fees and the possible scenarios for doing so are considered. The author stresses the necessity to overcome existing stereotypes concerning the interconnection between the accessibility of education and charging tuition.
