Factoid of the Day: Inflation in College Tuition

Hat tip to Ray Hyde for the following chart:
Inflation in college tuition costs separated from the general Consumer Price Index in the early-mid 1980s and began accelerating in the early 1990s. It would be interesting to know what new legislation, new regulation, or economic/demographic trends accounted for the breakaway. My operating hypothesis is that the super-inflation can be attributed somehow to government policy. Does anyone have any thoughts?
