Saving and Investing For College

Why tolerate byzantine financial-aid rules that discourage families from saving and investing for college costs? What if families could put aside as much as possible and still qualify for student loans as needed?

Good idea? Sheila Bair, former chair of the FDIC and now a college president, thinks so. See her WSJ op-ed.
Bair's column drew a curious assortment of comments: some pertinent, others blaming student aid for soaring tuitions. A few illustrate the value of The Bill of Rights: Americans are free to offer their opinion of articles without actually reading them.
