Share Stories about the Impact of Rising College Costs

As college costs continue to rise, many families are finding it difficult, if not impossible, to pay for postsecondary education. In fact, the affordability crisis threatens to derail the dreams of millions of bright, talented young people who either cannot afford college or who leave school burdened with overwhelming debt.

To make the case for action to address this crisis, NEA is looking for stories of real students who cannot afford to pursue a college education. As we approach the graduation season, we are asking NEA members to share stories of your students who would like to attend college but cannot because of the cost. Stories will be collected and used to bolster the case for action by policymakers.

Send stories today!

Share with NEA any anecdotal stories about promising students you know for whom cost is the only barrier to postsecondary education.
