Squeeze Play 2010: Continued Public Anxiety on Cost, Harsher Judgment on How Colleges are Run.

Six out of ten Americans now say that colleges today operate more like a business, focused more on the bottom line than on the educational experience of students. Further, the number of people who feel this way has increased by five percentage points in the last year alone and is up by eight percentage points since 2007. These are highlights from a series of national surveys tracking public attitudes on higher education, conducted by Public Agenda for the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. The current results are based on a survey of 1,031 Americans conducted in December 2009.
