Nineteen-year-old Vanessa Massarotti was accepted at her top choice private four-year university, but for economic reasons, had to enroll instead in Brookdale Community College.

 

“Financially, I have a brother and sister in college also, so it was really hard, so I just had to come to Brookdale, save money”, like Vanessa, more students may be squeezed out of their dream school or college in general. For a public four-year college tuition has skyrocketed from 1,600 dollars twenty years ago to nearly 7,000 now, for a private school, from 8,000 to 25, 000 dollars.

 

“For a long time, we just thought about the poor, but now many middle-class students can’t go, the tuition’s just too high”. A new education report card found that families making less than 19,000 dollars a year doled out 39% of their income on public college costs in 1999. That number jumped to a whopping 55% in 2007, the share for middle-class families making less than 90,000 dollars also climbed from 18 to a hefty 25%, while families making more than 90,000 saw the lowest increase, from 7 to 9%

 

“And the problem is only likely to get worse. Historically, education experts say during tough economic times, states tend to cut college budgets which sends tuitions up”, “I think it’s gonna be very interesting to see if states that have relatively high instate tuitions if they are not gonna to lose students to other states that have lower costs”, “I know money is still always gonna be an issue”, Vanessa’s college dreams ultimately will be determined by her family’s bottom line.

整理笔记:

 

choice(adj.): of very fine quality

 

squeeze out: force out

 

the poor: think about 后面加名词,听上去很像they are poor,但是分析句子知道他说的是“以前只注意到穷学生,现在还有中产阶级的学生了”

 

dole out: administer or bestow in small portion 少量给与,可以跟钱或宝贵的东西如知识,帮助等

 

college costs: 上学花费很多名目的费用,一般用复数,细节 

 

whopping: exceptionally large

 

Hefty: heavy

 

times: a more or less definite period of time now or previously present 注意不是time,细节 

 

instate tuition: 没找到太多解释。大概意思是为了保护纳税人的利益,美国的州立大学对该州的纳税人的子女收取的学费会比对外来学生收取的学费低很多很多。这就叫instate tuition.
