Washington, DC — On Thursday, January 19, Vice President Joe Biden and Deputy Secretary of Education Tony Miller will visit Galena High School in Reno, Nevada to discuss college affordability.
Since the members of Galena High School's senior class were born, average published tuition and fees at public four-year colleges across the country have tripled. Two thirds of all college students take out loans to pay for school, graduating with an average debt of over $25,000.
As part of a continuing national dialogue on the issue, the Vice President will discuss the importance of college and the steps the Administration has taken to keep college affordable in Nevada and across the country. He will also call on colleges and universities to do their part to contain costs and ensure college remains within reach for the middle class.
