Mississauga, Ontario – October 3, 2013: Affordability is a top decision maker for 34 per cent of parents surveyed, in contrast to only 13 per cent of students, when it comes to choosing a post-secondary education path for their children. This is one conclusion found by a new study commissioned by Knowledge First Financial and conducted by Ipsos Reid of Canadian high school/post-secondary school students and parents. Forty-three per cent of students disagree with parents, placing high emphasis on a program’s ability to fit their academic interests.
