    The real cost of higher education

    The year’s incoming college freshman class has the summer to think about the first test question of the fall: How on earth am I going to pay for this?

    That’s hardly an original problem. But the growing focus on student debt and the long-lasting financial burden it can inflict on young people make the cost of college more pressing than ever.
