As cost to attend UW-Madison rises, concerns about access grow as well - AMBER ARNOLD, State Journal

Students at UW-Madison today pay more than twice as much on tuition, housing and other college-related costs as their Badger peers did three decades ago. In the mid-1980s, a Wisconsin resident paid the inflation-adjusted equivalent of just less than $12,000 annually to attend the state’s flagship public university and live in Madison. This year, UW-Madison estimates it will cost $24,736. With concern over student loan debt growing, the figures are yet another illustration of how the challenge of paying for college is far greater for this generation of students than it was for their parents or grandparents.
