College Costing More Than Ever

Some college students are also seeing another rise in tuition.

The average price of public colleges rose to just over $7,000, a 6.5 percent increase. Students paid out of pocket an average of about $1,600 at four year schools, but that was still higher than last year.

Meanwhile, private college tuition was up as well, 4.4 percent up to $26,000. That's with financial aid covering about $14,000 of that figure.

    If the illegals can come up with this type quanity of money surely they can do the right thing and become legal. They should say "Yes we can"!

    If our elected officials hadn't of voted to have illegals enroll into our schools, at our (the tax payer) expense (and now the student), tuition wouldn't be going up so high. So what we are paying for, is not better learning, but to put illegals through school. America is no longer for us Americans.
