Section 2.8 Wrap-Up Exercise

(Modified from Jaafar, in Mathematics for Social Justice: Resources for the College Classroom, ed. Gizem Karaali and Lily Khadjavi) Write a \(\approx 3\)-page letter to a student about to enter college describing what you've learned about student loans, including:
  1. what's happened to tuition at various types of institutions over the last decades;
  2. what's happened at our institution in particular;
  3. any racial differences in student debt and how confident you are that these differences exist, citing statistics; and
  4. what you recommend the student does to manage their finances during and after college.
