College Affordability and Transparency Center

I wanted to send this link to our Blog readers because it is a resource that I like a lot. The information is provided by the U.S. Department of Education in response to The Higher Education Opportunity Act.  If you want to know where your College/University stacks up in the ranking of Tuition and Fees you will find a lot of information on this site. Every election cycle the U.S. Department of Education becomes the political football for candidates looking for sound bites to get attention for what is wrong with education.  While there is a lot to be said on this topic, one should review the information collected and offered by this agency because it is a very valuable resource that often gets ignored. http://collegecost.ed.gov/
