Fees can be abused through silence or by institutional duplicity that borders on mendacity. Even when the information is made available, its likely to be in places that most families wouldnt know to look. Secrecy invites and rewards mendacity. Follow the money, prosecutors say.

They, too, need to follow the money and thus help lead higher education along the path of honesty.Professor at William & MaryDr. Terry Meyers
