The College Board reported recently that a "moderate" college budget for an in-state public college is $22,261; for a private college, the price tag is nearly doubled. Multiply that by four and you have a sudden, frightening sense of the realization that confronts every high school student and their parents as graduation nears. In Is College Worth It?, former United States Secretary of Education William J. Bennett and current graduate student David Wilezol answer the question looming in the back of millions of American minds. Their responses are not always affirmative; indeed, their frank discussions about runaway tuition costs, uneven academics, political indoctrination, and poor graduation rates add necessary elements of trepidation to family decision-making. An education in itself.
