UPDATED MEDIA ADVISORY

Washington, DC — On Tuesday, April 3rd 2012, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will travel to Maury High School in Norfolk, Virginia to discuss college affordability. Since the members of Maury High School's senior class were born, average published tuition and fees at public four-year colleges across the country have tripled. Two thirds of all college students take out loans to pay for school, graduating with an average debt of over $25,000.

In the afternoon, at 3:45 PM, Vice President Biden will continue the dialogue by answering questions about college affordability and the steps the Administration has taken to keep college affordable in Virginia and across the country on Twitter. People can ask questions using the hashtag #AskVP and follow the chat live from the @VP Twitter account. Additional details can be found at WhiteHouse.gov/AskVP.
