WASHINGTON - The cost of higher education across the United States has risen more than 40 percent over the past 10 years, according to a study released yesterday by the College Board. The annual report, "Trends in College Pricing," said declines in state funding, endowments and fund raising contributed to soaring tuition costs at four-year public and private universities. "In a troubled economy, colleges are faced with ... holding down prices without sacrificing educational quality," said Gaston Caperton, president of the College Board, a nonprofit group that owns the SAT, a standardized test that many colleges require for admission.
