Title:Buying college: What consumers need to know
Organization:Center for American Progress
Short Description:Beyond helping students make the choice of whether or not to enroll at a particular institution, the federal government should be encouraging students to make better choices among the educational options available to them.
Annotation:Students’ lack of information when making college choices costs individuals the opportunity to create a better future for themselves and it costs taxpayers when students use federal grants and loans and state subsidies to pursue overpriced or underperforming educational programs. Beyond helping students make the choice of whether or not to enroll at a particular institution, the federal government should be encouraging students to make better choices among the educational options available to them.
