If you’re good at planning ahead, you may have thought about it before your child was even born. After all, it’s one of the major responsibilities you face as a parent: your child’s college education. Personal growth and expanded horizons are reason enough to send a child to college, but there are more practical considerations, too. College graduates have more jobs to choose from, and they generally make more money than people who have a high school education. That makes college education very important for your child’s future.
Learn how you can plan for your child's education.
