🏫 My time to help my children pay for college is rapidly approaching. I am fortunate enough to be able to pay for at least some of their college costs. I know many others are not in that position. What a difficult choice some are going to have to face: Go to college and come out with a mortgage’s worth of debt or don’t attend.

It got me wondering what my college would cost in today’s dollars. I found a pretty reasonable estimate: $11,500/year. The shocker (that really isn’t shocking): Tuition at the school I attended is now $29,000/year.

While I was researching this, I found an article When College Went to Congress. I wonder how many of our elected officials release what their college costs for today’s young people.
