Points to Ponder...

When we begin to think education is too expensive, let us keep in mind...

  • An average hospital stay is about $100 a day.
  • Keeping a person in jail costs more than $13,000 a year.
  • Taking care of a minor in a juvenile detention center costs the public $7,500 a year.
  • To educate a child in the United States costs only $1,400 a year - or about $7.77 a day.
  • The cost of education is a small price to pay for the great benefits an education brings to the child, to the family, and to the society.
