One of the most sound investments you can make to help pay for your child's higher education is by using a 529 plan. These funds grow in a tax-free environment, and generally have a 3-5% rate of return. The only catch is that all funds need to be used for higher education, and if not... there are monetary penalties imposed when withdrawn for other uses.
