humdrumstar: That’s what Newsweek asks.Newsweek: College as a Lousy Investment?
Well, that depends on whether or not you actually think it’s a guarantee to a slice of the capitalist dream. If you go to college expecting the return on your investment to be a home in the suburbs or a job, well, go to trade school. I never saw college as an investment but as an opportunity to learn. Whatever came after that was what came after that. Retool your expectations for education and maybe you’ll get something out of it. Universities aren’t job factories.
