The rising cost of college — even before the recession — threatens to put higher education out of reach for most Americans...
Over all, the report found, published 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 more affluent students.

But let me ask this to you young college folks out here.
Why is it that I see so many young college students driving around in fancy cars with spoked spinner wheels and blaring subwoofers and buying all kinds of gadgets to throw into the mix when there is an education to be paying for????
