Growing up in a Massachusetts middle class family where sometimes money got tight, I knew going to college was going to require a lot of hard work, student loans, and saving. My parents helped both my brother and I with as much of the tuition costs as they could, and took out parent loans, but at the end of school we both faced mounting student loan debts.
This was over 10 years ago, and the cost of college has only risen since then! Now I am a mom living the middle-class life, with three children of my own to get through college. Like most moms I dream of my children going off to college to fulfill their own passions in life, and like most moms I hate the idea that this could force them into debt. However, we live in Florida now and I am thrilled to learn about Florida Prepaid College Savings Plans.
