It's one of the biggest financial decisions families will make and yet so many parents are woefully unprepared. Who can blame them? The cost of college goes up about 5% a year -- twice the rate of inflation! It also significantly outpaces the average increase in personal income. Sure there's a wealth of information out there about college planning but who has time to sort through it all?
