A take from the Wall Street Journal:
"A four-year college degree, seen for generations as a ticket to a better life, is no longer enough to guarantee a steadily rising paycheck."
As one of my brilliant subjects from Generation Debt, who sent me the link, put it, "Ya think?"
And from the Times, about Berea College in Kentucky, a member of the Work College Consortium (which I've written about before and find really intriguing); The school accepts only low-income applicants, charges no tuition, has no frills, and requires students to work 10 hours a week on campus.
“You can literally come to Berea with nothing but what you can carry, and graduate debt free,” said Joseph P. Bagnoli Jr., the associate provost for enrollment management. “We call it the best education money can’t buy.”
