Kids Ship College… Not Worth the Money

Anything but college to try to get a job.

College no longer guarantees success or even a good enough job to pay back student loans. Thanks, but no thanks, some high school grads are starting to say to higher ed.

This comes at a time when unemployment for recent bachelor’s recipients was still up to 12.6% as late as 2011, the most recent year available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a far cry from 2007’s rate of 7.7%. If post-grad unemployment doesn’t get much better, this trend could shake the foundations of America‘s 7,000-plus colleges and universities, which currently take in over $147 billion each year in tuition and fees, according to the Department of Education.
