Will.i.am Sent Four Kids To College In 2009, And They Didn't Let Him Down
Feb 28, 2015
While college tuition has steadily gone up every year, incomes have not increased to match that pace, rendering thousands of kids unable to attend college. Thankfully, celebrities like Will.i.am are "[investing] in America's future."
Although it's been said time and time again that a good education is priceless, the sad truth is that there is a very real and very hefty price tag associated with going to college. In 2015, the total cost (tuition, books, room/board) of four years of attendance at an in-state public college was roughly $96,000. The cost of a degree from a moderately priced private institution comes in at nearly twice that amount, $184,000.
