President Obama made stops in upstate New York and Pennsylvania last week to focus on the cost of higher education. The president called for a new system to hold colleges and universities accountable for not just the cost of tuition but the dropout rate, job prospects for their graduates and other factors.

Dan Lundquist, the vice president at the Sage Colleges has been studying the rising cost of college, has found that more and more parents and students are pushing back, demanding a lower cost and higher expectations.
