When U.S. Education Secretary John King asked about 200 Memphis students if they were considering going to college, most raised their hands. And most of those hands stayed up when he asked if they’d be the first in their family to do so.
So, in the spirit of showing students that they can navigate the process to get there, King recruited one high school senior to demonstrate College Scorecard, a tool launched last year by the U.S. Department of Education for students and parents to compare the cost and value of various colleges.
