The Higher Education Bubble

By | source: Nov 3rd, 2011

Student loans are one of the biggest problems facing our country at the moment. Thousands of students attend university and even if they drop out, students still end up with mountains of debt. This debt can follow them throughout their life.

Today’s infographic says 85% of today’s college graduates will move back in with their parents after school. I know my parents would love seeing my face more around the house, although they would probably prefer I get a job after college. If only higher education didn’t cost as much.

Prices have been rising for colleges all over the country while performance has declined. One in three students will not learn any critical reasoning or thinking skills during their first two years of university. This statistic has me baffled. I learned quite a lot my first two years at college. I suppose some students don’t put forth the effort to learn. [Higher Education Bubble]
