College: Tuition up 439% over 25 years.

College May Become Unaffordable for Most in U.S.


... college tuition and fees increased 439 percent from 1982 to 2007, adjusted for inflation, while median family income rose 147 percent. Student borrowing has more than doubled in the last decade, and students from lower-income families, on average, get smaller grants from the colleges they attend than students from more affluent families.

Comment: 2 of my children are still in college. One is closing in on his Associates' degree (paying his own way while working), the other is working on a Bachelor's (Engineering). He is funding his by work, VA benefits, and tuition reimbursement. Both (along with my daughter) eschewed student loans.
