I pretty much agree. BUT IF some did not go into (incredible ) debt, there would be a good number of needed positions not filled. Largely in the medical fields.<quoted text>
My nephew graduated college with a Masters a few years ago. My niece will graduate this year. My sister and ex brother-in-law are strapped with college loans they will have to repay until past their retirement. My niece and nephew will be strapped with their loans for many years to come.
When one figures out what kind of money they can make with a college education, and then subtracts all the loans they have to repay, all the years they spent in college forfeiting full-time pay, it really makes a person wonder if college is the investment of a lifetime. How many years does it take for a college graduate to break even?
The CRIME is what establishments of higher learning keep charging!!
A son of mine chose a particular college largely for it's reputation in his field & largely because of it's class sizes. From his 3rd to his 4th year, class sizes doubled & tuition went up a double digit percent. WHY? Seemingly to enlarge the campus & increase enrollment for more money.
Tuition does NOT need to be so F'ing high semester after semester.
