The cost of education

I'm not sure where this is suppose to go and I hope I am not repeating another form, but what are the reasons for exorbitant price tags on post second education, besides the supply and demand? Any conspiracy theories?

I wouldn't say post secondary education is exorbitantly priced in Canada. The cost is certainly manageable.

Education in Canada is relatively inexpensive to students because the cost is largely subsidized by provincial and federal governments. The price now has nothing to do with supply and demand and everything to do with the enormous amount of time, energy, and resources that go into preparing courses, teaching, lecturing, and the overall operation of a university.
