Many consumer protection laws make sure that if people don’t receive what they paid for, they get their money back. Should that apply to higher education? That’s the case being made by a new “tuition payer bill of rights” backed by a coalition of nonprofits and think tanks from across the political spectrum. It makes six demands aimed at empowering students to decide how much to pay for college and making sure they get their money’s worth. The first proposed entitlement is the one most tied to current events: the right “to be refunded for services not rendered.”
