Good Article (Mainly for Parents) about Saving for College

A good article about what it will take to save for a child's education, including a cost calculator:

Saving for College - 18 Years in the Making

Quote: Mr. McKinley suggests an approach he calls “20-20-20.” Take the current average cost of attending four years at a public university: roughly $60,000. Save $20,000 before your child begins college by putting aside $50 a month starting at birth and assuming a 6 percent annual return. Then, pay $20,000 out of current income while the student is in college. Finally, have your child take out $20,000 in federal student loans over four years. The $200 monthly payments afterward are not a horrible burden for people in their 20s to bear, and they’ll be debt free once the 10-year payback period is over.“It’s all doable with several very small sacrifices,” Mr. McKinley says.
