I was recently a guest panelist on Northwest Now, a half-hour talk show on KBTC, Tacoma’s PBS affiliate. The program discussed the Washington state Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) program and college savings challenges in general.
The program will air on KBTC a few times in May. You can watch the program at your convenience online by clicking the image below.
I was joined on the panel by Betty Lochner, the director of the GET program and Gene Sharratt, executive director of the Washington Student Achievement Council. It was a good discussion about the pros and cons of GET, tuition inflation and financial aid. I also talked a bit about how to think about college savings as part of an overall financial plan.
If you have questions about college savings after watching the program, please let me know.
