Houston Chron: Weekly Round-up: UPDATEDPosted: September 20, 2010
This week, two items stood out:
- Jeannie Kever’s piece on Texas’s latest goal for degree attainment: 3 million more college degrees
- Kever’s latest article about the skyrocketing enrollments and increased diversity in Texas schools
- via MomBlog, the costs of college for a kid born today: $175,000
Does the increased expense of a college education, and the amount of loans taken out by students, affect the public’s attitudes towards higher education, especially when college students are not just younger but substantially more diverse than the rest of the population? Take a look at the comments.
