Elle Rudolph's insight:

Community college is a new great option compared to spending your life savings at universities. The pros of going to a community college is the cost of tuition, flexible schedule, gives students options to explore major options, smaller classes, qualified professors, and it's transitional. Though the cons for community college would be limited curriculum, lighter workload, uninvolved students, and campus life.

Elle Rudolph's insight:

According to this article, more and more people are taking out student loans to cover costs well above and beyond tuition and ordinary living expenses. Nearly a quarter of all borrowers have taken out more in loans than they paid in tuition. The people who are just taking out these loans are just adding more student debt on themselves by not going to school and getting a good job, and just using that money to pay off a cell phone bill. How would they ever pay these loans off?

The Growing Inequality In How America Saves For College

The Growing Inequality In How America Saves For College | College | Scoop.it
A college education could be slipping out of reach of low-income families, according to a survey showing growing inequality in how America saves for college.
Elle Rudolph's insight:

This article explains the insight that more low-income families don't save for college due to them thinking that financial aid or scholarships will get their child through college. More than fifty percent of the middle class starts saving for college, while only a quarter of high class saves for college. As higher education becomes increasingly expensive, and the gap between richest and poorest grows ever larger, and the hope of future education is dimming for a lot of students.

Government projects to make $50B in student loan profit

Government projects to make $50B in student loan profit | College | Scoop.it
DETROIT — The U.S. government projects to make more money off student loans this fiscal year than ExxonMobil, Apple, J.P. Morgan Chase or Fannie Mae made on their respective businesses last year, a new analysis shows.
Elle Rudolph's insight:

The federal government has a record of $50 billion profit on student loans this past year. Student interest rate keeps increasing too, making loans a killer instead of a burden. Because the government has almost ensured anyone who applies will get the loan they need, schools have been able to drive prices up with no concern as to where funding will come from.

Community colleges increasingly adding bachelor’s degrees - Hechinger Report | College | Scoop.it
CLEARWATER, Fla. – In a high-ceilinged classroom, bright sun poking through the blinds and reflecting off the whiteboard, eight students lug heavy textbooks to their desks and prepare for this afternoon’s lesson: proteins.
Elle Rudolph's insight:

More community colleges are offering bachelor degrees in certain areas, saving more and more students more money. This is a great idea because it doesn't dent the pocket of students so much, and they still get the equivalent education as attending a four- year bachelor degree program.
