提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

on rootandyg

 

19-year-old Vanessa M was excepted at her top choice private 4-year university, but for economic reasons, had to enroll instead in Brooktel community college.

 

Financially, I have a brother and sister in college also. So it was really hard. So I just ended up coming to Brookdel, 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 talked about the very poor. But now, many middle class students can't go. The tuition is just too high.

 

A new education report card found families making less than 19,000 dollars a year doled out 39 percent their income on public college cost in 1999; that number jumped to a whopping 55 percent in 2007. The share for middle class families making less than 90,000 dollars also climbed from 18 to a hefty 25 percent, while families making more than 90,000 saw the lowest increase, from 7 to 9 percent.

 

And the problem is only likely to get worse. Historically, education experts say during tough economic times, states tend to cut college budgets would send tuitions up.

 

I think it's gonna be very interesting to see if states that have relatively high in state tuitions if they are now gonna 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. Kelly Wallace, CBS news, New York.
