Your Call: How are students paying for college?

Apr 22, 2014

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the underlying reasons for the rising cost of higher education. According to the College Board, over the past 30 years, average tuition at a four-year public college has risen by more than 250 percent, while family income has gone up only 16 percent. So how are families and students paying for college? What role should the federal government play to make college affordable? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
