How do colleges confront the costs of college without affecting quality? In these difficult economic times, there are some good examples.
Higher educational institutions in the California system are looking for creative ways to reduce college costs. A project with Udacity, a for-profit provider of MOOC – or massive open online courses – may offer a solution.

The debt burden is causing many young college graduates, and even students, to return to the nest.
“More and more students are taking on more and more debt, leaving themselves very vulnerable, especially today when we know unemployment is still a problem for young people,” says one expert.
The college cost crunch is cutting across all economic lines.
