Does a college education pay off?

Many schools that are marketing to young parents are going to have a tough sale because they are a part of a growing number of recent college graduates who couldn’t find work in their profession after investing 4 years and thousands of dollars in the chance for a better job.

Many young graduates take lower-paying jobs as waiters or cashiers that pay the bills, but rarely use the skills they learned in college and often have little money left to pay off student loans. And the choices they make early in their careers often have a long-lasting financial impact.

When the social and economic situation doesn’t produce what it claims to produce, then the population will lash out. When you play by the rules and still fail, then those losers who had always been winners will not be silenced. If you think being a teacher or administrator is hard now, just wait.
