"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."
Our founding father, Benjamin Franklin said those famous words about getting a higher education, but when the total student debt in our nation is $1.2 trillion dollars, the burden of that investment starts to feel more than a little daunting.
If you are a senior in high school, have a child about to go to college, or are considering going back to school, it’s likely that the cost of getting a degree is weighing heavily on your mind.
