How Much Does College Really Cost?
It’s no secret that college tuition prices have been rising rapidly in recent years, but do those hikes affect all students equally? In March, reporters will be able to answer that question with data for more than 3,000 colleges nationwide thanks to a new interactive data tool — built as part of a collaboration involving EWA, The Hechinger Report and The Dallas Morning News — that tracks what students from different income groups really paid over the past four academic years.
This webinar offers a guided tour of this innovative new website. Holly Hacker of The Dallas Morning News will discuss what data were used to build this analysis and Jon Marcus of The Hechinger Report offer insights on the stories behind the numbers.
