As someone that works in higher education and the funding of that education, it is very difficult for a low income to mid-income family to pay for their education without taking loans. At the University I work for we have a program in place for famlies at or below the poverty line we award a grnt to cover the students full tuition. Most schools need to have this type of program inplace because it ends up lower the loan debt for the most needy. I do agree college tuition cost has gotten out of hand and it needs to be brought to a level where it is reasonable and more affordable.
