Nick Anderson, at left, interviewed President Obama about education in July 2009.

A former Post education editor, Nick writes about college from the perspective of a father of three who will soon be buried in tuition bills. His interests include the technological revolution in education, the admissions and financial aid maze, the rapidly changing (and globalizing) university market and the sheer intellectual fun of academic life. He joined The Post in 2005 after covering Congress and education for the Los Angeles Times, and he is a graduate of Stanford University.
