The Price of Education

The race gap in education is especially great when it comes to how students pay for school, according to a new report from the American Institute of Research. The report found that Black doctoral students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields were more than twice as likely as whites or Asians to accumulate at least $30,000 in debt. About 25 percent of Blacks in the study admitted they already owe more than that amount. (Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
