SEATTLE (AP) -- A group of University of Washington students wants to find a way to go back to the days when students could afford to work their way through college.
They are taking their case to the Legislature, calling for more financial aid and lower tuition.
The Seattle Times reports the students have written a new report called "Meet Us in the Middle: Affordability for the Working Student."
The report assumes many students will put themselves through college, with little help from their parents. But because the cost of college is so high now, it's no longer possible for students to pay their own way without acquiring high student loans.
