Like many of us that live in the US, I am alarmed at the cost of sending our kids to college. It is a challenge for even those that make a decent living. The typical private 4 year university ranges in the mid $60-$70K today (at least the one's on my son's list). Qualifying for federal money is challenging today as the the FAFSA (federal funding agency) scale does not move direct correlation to income growth and does not consider debt. Make for some tough decisions for our kids.
I could not help myself being the a visual/data person but to gather up some publicly available tuition data to see if rising costs impact enrollment. I was looking for other elements of interest as well. The Power BI I am sharing could be used as a simple college search tool as well. I would like to find some real solid info on ROI but that is harder to find and the sample size of the survey data that does exist makes the data pretty questionable.
This report does show the use of the new Sync Slicer feature and uses Drill-Through to follow the story from Region, to State, to School, etc...
The data that was available only covered through 2015 so costs are not current.
Yeah, it costs a lot but it's really worth it in my opinion. Our kids can finally get the education that they deserve as said at https://primetimeessay.com/hills-like-white-elephants/ in an incredible article. Words can't describe how impressed I was after reading it.
this is sickeningly expensive! I read http://freetexthost.com/zorhxz2zyd this article which explains in details why the USA educational system is so insanely overpriced. such a great read!!
