Florida helps families see behind the college curtain

|

College is looming. Our eldest son, a 10th-grader, is already thinking about which (actually, whether) college will help him become an entrepreneur. Our daughter, a ninth-grader, has already told us she wants a “return on investment” for whatever path she picks postgraduation. Then there are our twin boys, in seventh grade. Their high-school graduations may be five years off, but my wife and I already dread the college tuition tab for potentially all four kids at the same time.

So we’re grateful that Florida is helping us. Last year Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a “student right to know” bill, making it easier for high-school students and parents to find more-affordable college paths and financially rewarding degrees.
