Paying for college can be daunting. Rising tuition costs and expenses such as food, housing, and books cause concern and leave many parents questioning whether and how they can afford college. But some parents are making it work by finding ways to lower costs, and a new book reveals their strategies.
Please join Science Leadership Academy as we welcome Ron Lieber, author of the new book “The Price You Pay for College: An Entirely New Roadmap for the Biggest Financial Decision Your Family Will Ever Make”. Ron has been the “Your Money” columnist for The New York Times since 2008. He is also a New York Times Best-Selling author.
The Q&A will be hosted by Sara Goldrick-Rab, new SLA parent, Temple University Professor, and author of “Paying the Price”, featured on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. We invite you to purchase “The Price You Pay for College” at your favorite local bookseller and join us for a Q&A with Ron on March 24, 2021 at 7:00 PM EST on Zoom.
The suggested donation amount is $10.00. You will receive a zoom link and form to submit questions in advance.
This session is open to the public, and we welcome your support of Science Leadership Academy (SLA), a public partnership high school between the School District of Philadelphia and The Franklin Institute that promotes inquiry-based learning. Most SLA students come from economically disadvantaged families and two-thirds are from racial minoritized backgrounds. Support from this event enables internships and other supplemental programming.
