Cost of college jumps 4.8%

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The cost of a college education keeps going up.

A new report from the college board says the cost of tuition at a public university jumped 4.8 percent last year.

One year at a state school now costs $16,510. That is up more than 104 percent in the past 10 years.

The increase is being blamed on higher costs for books, teacher pensions, building maintenance and other costs.
