Is Higher Education (College and University) Still Relevant and Is It Worth the Time, Money, and Effort?
For most students who finish and earn their degree, the evidence suggests the answer is ‘yes’ — says new research conducted by Ipsos and Navient. The study, “Money Under 35,” explores the financial health of Americans between 22 and 35 years of age. The study reveals that college graduates have higher levels of employment and income. In fact, the study found that 80% of bachelor's degree holders are employed full time, compared with just half of their peers who started college but did not finish.
Such training will capacitate hard working people, which will do well to The United States economy. The government should invest more of its money on helping those students that cannot afford college.
My study would preoccupy itself with filling this gap by focusing on the extent to which higher education would improve the potential to attain higher earnings.
Students also overestimate the likelihood they will land a job related to their education shortly after graduation.
