The higher education system in the United States is broken. With tuition continuing to soar upward, students and their families have the right to know where the money is going and the responsibility to be fully informed of the financial burden they are taking on. Statistics 101 is a website seeking to make the whole issue more widely understood.
“The Breakdown” page runs through factual statistics but aims to make them more digestible through the use of infographics. Quotes from politicians, journalists and industry experts are woven throughout to contribute their opinions to the discussion. The “Required Reading” page seeks to create an archive gathering any articles or books written on the topic in one place. The beta site is currently in place but a major overhaul is planned for the near future.
