New paper today from College Summit and Bellwether about the ‘is college worth it?’ debate. Our take is that the evidence shows it is, quite clearly, but that it’s the wrong question. There are undoubtably some bad decisions students can make so what’s needed are better tools and methods to help students navigate their post-secondary choices. You can learn more and read the paper via this link.
Here’s Chronicle of Higher Ed on the paper and a second analysis out today on the same issue from Public Agenda.
