Well, Duh 

Colleges and universities are starting to realize they cannot keep raising tuition.  That's a blinding insight.  Academics have lived in a bubble for so long that they have difficulty understanding  they have priced themselves out of their market.  They expected parents to pony up year after year, decade after decade, and parents did, but they can't any longer.  Their children are buried in debt from which they will not escape well into their working careers, if they have careers.  

No one can accuse academia of listening to its publics.  In fact, it was the reverse. The attitude was more put-up-and-shut-up.  A come-down for education has been too long in arriving.  Maybe now universities and colleges will practice elementary public relations.
