Abstract

Saving for College and the Tax Code: A New Spin on the "Who Pays for Higher Education?" Debate, by Andrew Roth, Vice President of Enrollment at Mercyhurst College, sheds light on an increasingly common mechanism for financing the costs of higher education: state-sponsored, tax-advantaged college savings plans. Roth includes three types of programs under this umbrella: prepaid tuition plans, college savings plan trusts, and college savings bonds. The book is based on Roth's dissertation, completed under the direction of D.Bruce Johnstone, Distinguished Professor at the Graduate School of Education at the State University of New York at Buffalo, and is organized into seven chapters, three appendices, bibliography, and index.
