"College tuition has risen four times the rate of inflation while most family’s resources have declined," says Burck Smith, StraighterLine's founder and CEO. "StraighterLine was built to fix that. Our college savings network lets students spend up to 60% less, get real academic credit, and receive the same degree they would have otherwise."
