With many young people preparing to attend colleges and universities throughout the country, there is one thing looming on the minds of many parents and students:  “How am I going to pay for this?”  Student loans seem to be the solution that many are choosing to finance their education.  According to a recent article in Forbes, the average college graduate will have student loans totaling close to $26,600.  This figure might seem daunting, and it especially seems overwhelming considering the economy and the dismal job market.

Join FRC for our upcoming Family Policy Lecture, “Is College Worth It?” on Wednesday, August 14th at Noon.  David Wilezol, associate producer of the nationally syndicated radio show, “Bill Bennett’s Morning in America,” joins us to look at the student loan industry and to examine whether a college education is all that it is cracked up to be.  You can register for the lecture here, and it is also available to view by webcast as well.
