  4. 4. Title 3Trillion Dollar CrisisAmerica is faced with raising newquestions about the wisdom ofdecades of public policy that focusedon increasing access to higher learningbut paid less attention to whathappens once students arrive oncampus. And some education expertshave begun to argue that startingcollege — and going into debt to payfor it — without a clear plan for adiploma is a recipe for disasterStudents who pay for schoolthemselves are more likely to dropoutdue to financial issues that those whoget help from their families, accordingto a survey conducted by PublicAgenda reported by the New York Times. Many students are faced with thereality that they may not graduate on time, due to class scheduling,changing majors and other factors. The survey shows that 2.8 million newstudents enroll in higher education every year.
