The cost of attending university in the United States has risen greatly in the past 20 years. Many people today say they owe huge amounts of money for loans they received for higher education. These students past and present say they are “drowning in debt.” Movie maker Andrew Rossi examined education debt in the film “Ivory Tower.” The documentary was released in movie theaters recently. “Ivory Tower” is often used in America to mean university or college. Andrew Rossi wrote, directed and produced “Ivory Tower.” He says college tuition, the cost of attending classes, increased by about 1,100 percent between 1978 and today. Estimates place the nation’s combined debt for student loans at $ 1 trillion. One comment made by a woman in “Ivory Tower” shows the deep concern that student loans can cause. But, one young man in the Washington, D.C. area says he does not face much worry about college costs. Brandon Attilis says his parents pre-paid his tuition. He is working this summer at a restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia. Mr. Attilis also plans to reduce his expenses by sharing a house with two friends. The movie notes that there have been reductions in government aid for education. Some colleges also build beautiful, but costly, campuses in hopes of getting students to attend.
“Ivory Tower” suggests that many students choose not to get a traditional college education because of the costs. Some try online education. But, Brandon Attilis says online education is not for everyone. He says it takes a lot of hard work and effort.
