ValuePenguin Ranked Berea College as the #1 Best Value School in KY

Berea College

Berea College

Education is the key to success and a better life – a cornerstone of the American dream. And here at ValuePenguin, we believe that a valuable education is one that prepares a student for graduation and employment in the real world.  http://www.valuepenguin.com/

With that in mind, ValuePenguin recently determined the Best Value Colleges in the state of Kentucky by asking two key questions:

1. How much does it cost in-state students to attend school every year?
We measured the total cost for in-state students at all Kentucky universities. When you talk about education value, price is a huge factor in the equation. An expensive school that doesn’t adequately prepare its students for real-world jobs can be a huge cost burden. Conversely, attending a cheaper

Senate Immigration Bill Fails to Secure Border

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor today regarding the need to address border security for comprehensive immigration reform:

“At the outset of this debate I expressed my hope that we could do something about our nation’s broken immigration system.

“Millions of men and women are living among us without any documentation or certainty about what the future will bring for themselves or their families. Many of those who come here legally end up staying here illegally. We have no way of knowing who or where they are.

And current law simply doesn’t take into account the urgent needs of a modern, rapidly-changing economy.

“Beyond all this, it’s long been a deep conviction of mine that from our earliest days as a people immigration has been powerful force of renewal and

Congress Should Act to Protect Students from Increased Interest Rates

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

Students in Kentucky pursuing higher education have enough to worry about as it is — like passing their exams, or finding a job after graduation. They don’t need the added worry of increasing interest rates for their student loans.

Yet, if Congress does not act before July 1, the interest rate on subsidized federal Stafford loans, given to eligible students to defray the costs of a four-year college or university, community college, or trade, career, or technical school, will double from 3.4 to 6.8 percent.

Because the doubling of the interest rate would only impact 40 percent of new student loans and lead to students only paying on average $6 more a month for any new loan, some ask why this is a compelling issue. But in this
