|If you're hoping your children
will get a higher education someday, get ready for a shock. When you
take everything into consideration, the total cost for a diploma or
degree could be terrifying. In fact, the 1995-96 student budget prepared
by the Canadian Federation of Students allocates $8,890 for tuition,
books, rent and food. Assuming inflation continues at three per cent
per year, a four-year undergraduate degree in 2014 will cost more
than $65,000. CDN.
