College Education Is Not An Investment

Don't Buy The Hype, College Education Is Not An Investment - Forbes: " . . . .She is doing well without a college degree because she understood that you’re not rewarded for credentials, but for capabilities. College used to look like a good “investment” because earning a degree usually entailed at least some serious work and having done it set the individual apart. Having that degree was a competitive advantage in landing a job, but success always depended on personal performance rather than educational pedigree. These days, with the labor market saturated with college graduates, the time and money spent on college is often wasted. What young Americans should think is, “How can I raise my value and demonstrate it?” That might best be done in college, like Student A, or it might be done elsewhere, like Student C. College itself isn’t an investment, just one way of increasing your value. --George Leef  is Director of Research at the John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy. He is a graduate of Carroll University in Wisconsin and Duke University Law School."
