19-year-old Vanessa Massarotti was accepted at her top choice private four-year university, but for economic reasons, had to enroll instead in Brookdel community college.

 

“Financially, I have a brother and sister in college also, so it was really hard, so I just ended up for coming to Brookdel, save money”, like Vanessa, more students may be squeeezed 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 talk about very poor, but now many middle-class students can’t go, the tuition’s just too high”. A new education report card found that family’s making less than 19,000 dollars a year doled out 39% of their income on public cost 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 expects say during tough economic time, states tend to cut college budgets would sends to tuitions up”, “I think it’s going to be very interesting to see if states that have relatively high in state tutions if they are not gonna to lose students to other states that have lower cost”, “I know money is still always gonna to be still an issue”, Vanessa’s college dreams ultimately will be determined by her family’s bottom line.
