This is How Much It Costs to Educate the President of the US

October 25, 2012  |  

No surprise here, but college is expensive. The College Board just reported that the average price for tuition, room and board, etc with tax deductions is $12,110 for a public school and $23,840 for a private, nonprofit school. (This was just released about for-profit colleges. LOL.) This year’s increase, according to The New York Times, is smaller than that of years past at three percent. Still, the high cost and tight job market has got a number of media outlets asking if the education is worth the expense. Well one day you or your kid could be President of the US and then all of that education will seem like a great investment.

The folks at Degree Jungle, a site that provides info about online college programs, have pulled together a fun and rather interesting infographic that illustrates just how much it costs to educate a US President (or presidential candidate). Think somewhere around $450K. Wow. Info below.
