I’m old enough to remember when a college education was free. Or virtually so. My father paid more for textbooks, room and board, than tuition. Tuition for state schools in Texas was minimal. They were state schools, after all. Nobody paid tuition for public schools.

School 🏫 Daze
It’s not a direct connection, but the change in attitude came along with the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
I attended state universities for two degrees, and in six years paid less in tuition than one semester would cost now. That’s not just inflation. That’s “nothing is free, so pay dearly for it.”
How’d that work out for us?
