Chart of the Week: 12/03/08

This chart shows that the average cost to attend college (2008 dollars) in one's home state has risen while the student to faculty ratio has remained relatively constant. This indicates that instruction is not a driver of ever higher costs, or alternatively, that additional funds are not going towards instruction.

This rings true, and also jibes with one of the past charts. The rise in personnel has mostly been in non-instructional roles. Yep, don't blame it on the faculty, that's not where the money is going.
