  2. The cost od an undergraduate education is rising higher than the salaries of borrowers and inflation and if things remain the same through 2016, the cost of an undergraduate education will have doubled in 15 years.

    Also, students and parents need to have standardized and clear info about the cost of an education, the repayment options and the total cost to get a degree in order to make an informed decison..

    I am still confused about the purpose..
