Sharon Noguchi, our San Jose Mercury News education reporter, is working on a story about families making decisions about how to afford sending their kids to college next year.

She’s looking for seniors, or parents of seniors, who are making financial calculations, or even refinancing homes and pleading with financial aid offices to boost their assistance. She’s especially interested in speaking with someone from the East Bay, to round out her regional story.

If you are are a high school senior, or a high school counselor or teacher adviser who knows families who might be willing to participate in the story, please contact Noguchi at 408-271-3773 or snoguchi@mercurynews.com.

She’s trying to finish the piece by early next week, before the May 1 college decision day.

Also, if anyone wants to comment on the issue of paying for college, please feel free to post here!
