KNX SPECIAL SERIES: Graduating To Broke

(KNX 1070) — KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO will take a comprehensive look at the rising, if not prohibitive cost of education from pre-school to higher ed.

Producers Charles Feldman and Laraine Herman, along with KNX 1070's award-winning news team, will explore how we are drowning in debt because of the high cost of education and what we can do about it.

The average college grad walks away with about $30,000 in loans and some say student debt could cause the country's next financial crisis.

Some of the topics include: How competition to get your kids into the right school raises costs, whether high-end universities are really worth it, why a college education in some other countries is free, how today's kids are asked to bring everything from copy paper to their own crayons because schools can't afford to provide them, and why a college degree no longer guarantees a good job.
