With families now racking up high debt just to pay for K-12 private schooling, the state of college students' abilities to pay for college out of pocket is not pretty. New Hampshire students lead the way in debt, though, according to a report from the Institute for College and Success.
Records from the 2009-10 school year show New Hampshire ahead of everyone else in the nation with the average graduate of a four-year college owing $31,048 by the time they are through. Public school graduates owe an average of $31,111 compared to the $30,863 tab that private school students wind up with.
As a Huffington Post report points out, the state does, however, have a relatively low unemployment rate at just 5.2 percent.
