The desire for a college education has become a dream rather than a realistic goal for many American students. As parents and students realize that an affordable college education may be out of their personal reach, many look to loans as a possible alternative. Unfortunately, as families are learning, the disheartening reality is that loans may also be too expensive, making them an unfavorable or unobtainable option.

Students at public universities in California are planning a series of demonstrations across the state protesting tuition hikes today. While a few isolated incidents in recent weeks have provided fodder for some in the media to dismiss their concerns, the students’ cause is incredibly important.
