On Monday, the American Association of University Professors released a new report showing that the median income of students attending public universities is less than half the national median income.
It’s worth noting that this median income is the median, not the mean.
The median means that the students who make up the population have some degree of autonomy over their finances and spending.
The more autonomy a student has over her or his financial situation, the more money they have available for college.
That’s important, because in the coming decades, it will become increasingly difficult for students to afford higher education without having access to a substantial financial cushion.
The report also shows that public colleges and universities are more expensive than private institutions.
The public colleges in the report are more than twice as expensive as private institutions in the United States, which means students at private colleges have an incentive to attend those institutions.
At public colleges, students will also be more likely to pay higher tuition than students at privately affiliated institutions.
And, as of this writing, the average tuition for private students at public institutions is $31,000 more than the average at private institutions, according to the College Board.
In other words, private colleges are more costly than public colleges because students have an expectation that their tuition will be higher.
That makes public colleges more affordable for students.
This is a good thing.
But public colleges are also more expensive to run.
In the report, the authors found that for every dollar that students pay to attend a private college, they’re spending $1,000 on operating costs.
Public colleges are expensive to operate because they have fewer resources to operate.
That means public colleges have less incentive to keep up with the changing demands of their students.
When the financial stress of living in a city or college town becomes unbearable, students and parents may be less willing to pay a lot of money for a college education.
To get a handle on how the federal government finances higher education, the College Foundation recently released a report that found that the federal student loan program pays for an average of 70 percent of the operating costs of public colleges.
The average amount of federal student aid paid for public colleges is $1.2 trillion.
The amount that students and families have to fork over to attend public colleges will go up significantly as the costs of attending private schools rise.
The College Foundation also released a study that found a lot more of students were able to attend private schools because they had loans to pay for them.
This could help explain why, for example, students who attend private colleges in California had higher SAT scores than students who attended public institutions.
If we are going to build a system that’s more affordable and equitable, it has to be built to make students more confident that they’ll be able to pay their way through college.
