What are people thinking?
“A study found that 37% of currently employed college grads are doing work for which only a high school degree is required” – Bureau of Labor Statistics Quoted in Forbes
There is a perception that we have to go to college. Why? Well, it’s so that we are able to get a job, right? Here is some data that isn’t popular, but should be communicated to our youth and their families before they commit to lot of unneeded college debt.
“68% of high school students are attending college. Almost 40% of students who begin 4 year programs are not completing them” – Bureau of Labor Statistics Quoted in Forbes
So one might ask, what does this mean? It means that there has been a waste of time, money, and now we have created student loan debt. Isn’t it about time we come up with a better plan to change how people are thinking?
