Since students in Maury High’s senior class were born, average tuition and fees at public four-year colleges across the country have tripled, according to the White House. Two-thirds of all college students take out loans to pay for school, graduating with an average debt of more than $25,000.

Later in the day, Biden will answer questions on Twitter about college affordability and talk about the steps the Obama administration has taken to keep college costs down in Virginia and across the country.
