I was recently struck by two statistics concerning college, both of which included the number 35.
Statistic #1: 35 thousand dollars is the amount of student loan debt the average college graduate acquires while earning his, or her, diploma.
Statistic #2: 35 percent of college graduates are unable to demonstrate any increased learning since having graduated from high school.
In the days to come, I hope to share some personal thoughts about the value of college.
Don’t worry, it will not all be negative. I believe in college, but not for the same reasons most people do. If you know others who might be interested in reading what I have to share, forward this to them and they can decide if they want to follow along.
The face of education is changing more rapidly than at any time since the American Public School system began in the mid-1800’s. These changes could dramatically benefit your children and grandchildren—but only if you are paying attention.
