Why Parents Are Paying a Smaller Share of the Tuition Bill.
Reisberg, Leo
Chronicle of Higher Education, v45 n31 pA45,47 Apr 9 1999
Parents are covering less of their children's college costs than ever before, according to a recent study. On average, parents contributed 55% in 1997-98, down from 69% in 1986-87; during the same period, college costs increased 38%. Reasons include decreased family savings, higher consumer debt, incomes not keeping up with inflation, and unwillingness to sacrifice luxuries. (MSE)
