19-year-old Venasa Ratie was accepted at her top choices private 4 year university, but for economic reasons had to enrol instead in Brooktel community college.

Financially my brother and sister are in college also, so it was really hard, so I just sended up, coming to Brooktel, save money. 

Like Venasa, more students maybe squeezed out of their dream school or college in general. For public 4-year college, tuition has skyrocketed from 1600 dollars 20 years ago to nearly 7000 now. For private school, from 8000 to 25000 dollars.

For a long time, we just thought about they were very poor, but now many class students can't go. The tuition is just too high.

A new education record found that families making less than 19000 dollars a year donate 39% income on public college course in 1999, that number jumping up to 55% in 2007. The share from middle class families making less than 90000 dollars also climb 18 to a have-to 25%. While the families making more than 90000 also increase from 7 to 9%.

And the problem is likely to get worse. Historically education experts say, during economic time, states turn to cut college budgets, which sends tuitions up.

I think it's going to be interesting to see if states that have relatively high instate tuitions, if they are going to lose their students to other states that have lower costs.

I know money is still always going to be an issue.

Venasa's college dream utimately will be determined by her family's bottom line. Kally Wallace, CBS News, New York.
