For many people, financing their children's education is both a dream and a nightmare. They dream of being able to send their kids to any school, regardless of the price, but deep down they know that the fees for tuition, room and board are growing faster than inflation. How do people manage to finance a higher education without having to sacrifice their own financial security?
