Abstract

ABSTRACT

This study proposes to examine a series of peer-reviewed articles and books on this subject, along with analyzing the opinions of higher education stakeholders such as higher education administrators/professors and state legislatures to understand (1) the role that higher education privatization plays in the future of public higher education in the United States; (2) how larger budget cuts for higher education are generating the growth of higher education privatization in the United States; and (3) how the rising cost of student tuition along with other factors are contributing to the growth of higher education privatization. The goal of this proposed study is to examine the slippery-slope of privatization to understand the impact it can make on the future of higher education in the United States.
