College costs rise fastest for the poorest

The Hechinger Report is a national nonprofit newsroom that reports on one topic: education. Sign up for our weekly newsletters to get stories like this delivered directly to your inbox.

The American RadioWorks looks at how universities and colleges that promised at a White House summit to make higher education more affordable for low-income students have been raising their prices faster for the poorest students than for their wealthier classmates.

The Hechinger Report’s Jon Marcus is interviewed.

You can find the podcast here.
