College Pays! -- Don't Bank on It

George Leef

In this week's Pope Center Clarion Call, Jenna Ashley Robinson and I take a look at the common notion that because, on average, people who have earned college degrees make more money than those who haven't, it's a wise decision for almost everyone to pursue a degree. The Bureau of Labor Statistics data appear to make that a "no brainer," but it isn't. Leaping to the conclusion that you will be better off with more formal education under your belt could be a costly mistake.
