This chapter focuses on the concept of campus democracy and academic freedom. It argues that the question of affordability of higher education is significant to any discussion of academic freedom. A survey from 2000 of 850 U.S. residents found that less than a tenth of adults who enjoy a family income of between $30,000 and $75,000 believe that college education is affordable. Those who make less than $30,000 fear that their children won’t be able to go to college. In addition, the survey found a majority worried more about college tuition than about the academic freedom of the faculty. The freedom to think is encroached upon by the encumbrances of money.
