White House Office Hours: College Affordability
06:36 PM EDT
Ed. Note: At 11:05 a.m. ET tomorrow, the President will discuss his plan to make college more affordable at the University at Buffalo. You can watch his remarks live at wh.gov/a-better-bargain.
A college education continues to be the ticket to the middle class. More and more, well-paying jobs require education or training after high school. But, despite President Obama's historic investments in college affordability since taking office, the cost of college has been growing out of reach for decades, and students and their families are taking on more of the costs.
This week, President Obama will be on the road to talk about an ambitious new agenda to make college more affordable, tackle rising costs, and improve value for students and their families. Back at the White House, senior staff will be on hand to answer your questions on Twitter.
