Stephen Burd was quoted in the Columbia State on public universities offering tuition breaks to attract wealthy out-of-state students:

“What these schools really want is increased revenue, and they want to increase their prestige,” said Stephen Burd, an education policy analyst at New America, a Washington, D.C.,-based nonpartisan think tank. “They do that by throwing money at people who already could afford to go without it.”
