As Pres. Obama touts changes to student loans, the College Board reports an 8.3% increase in tuition at four-year public universities. The cost of a full course load passes $8,000; add room and board, and the average list price now runs at least $17,000/year. Real wages for college grads are dropping, and Obama's proposals may barely put a dent in the problem, but hey, it's good politics.
