ITHACA, N.Y., Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The article begins, "68% of college graduates in the year 2015 completed their education with over $30,000 in student loan debt, and that amount has increased by almost 10% in the past two years." These are true statements. The college education that cost $10,000 in 1986 increased more than five times that at $59,800 just 20 years later. That is more than double the inflation rate, and college education is not projected to get cheaper any time soon.
