Higher education enrollments this spring are down 2.3 percent  from spring 2012, according to the National Student Clearinghouse. That’s more than the 1.8 percent decline between fall 2011 and fall 2012. One reason may be that the job market is getting (slightly) more favorable. But I think it also represents a judgment that higher education is overpriced and just not worth it, as I argued in this Washington Examiner column from earlier this month.
