Staff Report – Financing the Dream: Securing College Affordability for the Middle Class

  • “A central goal of the White House Task Force on the Middle Class is to ensure that public policy is helping middle-class families to realize their aspirations. At the heart of those aspirations is the deep-seated desire of parents to ensure that their children have the opportunity to realize their potential. For many families, this means making sure their children can afford a college education. And for many of those same families, this challenge has been growing for years, such that today, paying for college strains many family budgets to the breaking point. This staff report focuses on the challenges of paying for college in America today. The report briefly outlines the problem before turning to potential solutions.”
