"DD - it is higher than you've stated - I have been on the receiving end of (at one time) 26,000/yr from pell, perkins, need based/financial need (can't remember exact terminology) and then the student loans at the time totaled 7500 so 18,500 was the "free" monies. (state school)"

Only speaking for my state, up until around 5-6 years ago, if you were poor you could go to a state school for free, including books but not living expenses. Now the pell grant and MN state grant covers about 80% of tuition at state school, and 40% for a private school (if you are dirt poor). The rest is in student loans now.

To add, the MN state schools used to be 95% funded by the state per statute. Now it's around 40%.

The public schools here were rated very high and #1 many times for many years before beginning to drop in the 90's with public school funding cuts....now MN is in the mid-20's....or basically in the crapper from where they used to be.
