For each parent and student, it has to be a very personal question. How much is each willing to sacrifice? The expense of the Ivies and the doors that they open are not questioned. On a national scale, the expenses of Morehouse College are not considered to be excessive . I quote: "Expenses are a little less than colleges it is compared with". It is only expensive compared with other HBCUs.
Morehouse is not the only HBCU that you can ask this about. Does it open enough doors to make it worth it?

NCSIACFAN, yes.............that is part of my spiel when I'm out recruiting for the college. My experience is that......1) Morehouse is not expensive when compared to other private liberal arts colleges. In fact, its on the cheaper side; 2) Yes, my experience is that the doors that were opened as a result of going to Morehouse, were worth it to me. Of course, when I went to Morehouse tuition was around $6,000, and by the time I graduated it was around $8,000 (not including room and board).

NEYMAR give the money to your favorite charity or church.  Some of us are getting nothing.  May increase taxes to reload the coffers.  Nothing is FREE.   Attempt to buy votes with our money that'll cost you eventually. :nod:
He is his favorite charity or church.  Selfish b@st@trd.

Also why are Black parents getting sticker shock on college costs?? Why aren't we savings from birth instead of waiting until the child is in their junior year of high school only to discover college is expensive. :shrug:

Because when they were younger colleges were A LOT cheaper.

Also lets get real black income is in no way able to compensate saving for colleges on top of the already insane expenses in terms of housing,childcare, and their own student loans.

That is true. Now what I'm about to say may ruffle some feathers but here goes. I can one can trace the rise in college costs with the flattening of wages. So lets say in the mid 80's a couple may is blue collar wife is a school teacher. They could pay for or support a child going thru. Remove the manufacturing job and the teacher salary has not changes.  Wages have not kept pace with costs and the removal of Pell Grants are where we are now.

Bison for Life, everything you said is true. Wages have flattened and tuitions have increased, for sure. However, there's no reason that a college educated parent, should have sticker shock. A parent who's never went to college, yes. But not those of us who have attended. A parent that thinks their child may go to college, should start saving when the child is YOUNG................like elementary school age. There are plenty of 529 savings plans out there today that college-educated parents should know about. For example, my sister's kids are 12 and 10 years old, and she's been saving for their college education for at least the past three years. It may not end up being enough for the entire tuition, but it will certainly be a substantial amount.

Honestly, I think giving all of us one-time payments is a waste of time. It won't make any difference in the economy and won't make much difference for most people. That money would be better served if it was put towards medical care for those that are going to get sick.

Maybe this will give Wilder time enough to learn some real boxing skills instead of being a one hit wonder. :nod:
