Student's are not making the investment...my father-in-law always said, "you get what you pay for and you take care of those things you spend your money on".  Free is cheap and I have no ownership; it is disposable and unimportant; and I do not need to invest my time in it, I have nothing to lose.  But I am not saying the higher education should cost a ton either, but make it a real investment.  Otherwise we are going to have students who drop out of free classes only to feel crushed by the notion they can't cut it in higher education.  We need to make education affordable; hold students accountable for their part of the learning experience; hold institutions and their faculty to higher standards; and help students find the right techniques for their learning style to be successful.  Cheap or free is not the answer to a system that needs to change the way it does business to match the changes in the environment without sacrificing quality!
