The cost of a college education is exploding at a rate more than double that of overall inflation.
At the same time, college is becoming both more important for a young person trying to gain a foothold in the American economy – and more expensive.
A report published in June 2016 by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce showed that college educated workers are in far higher demand than they were just a couple of decades ago.
