Okay, So I’m An Idealist

Payscale Study says college is a poor investment | Seer Press.

But this cliché would otherwise be gradually disapproved by a recent study done by PayScale for Bloomberg Businessweek. In their study, there are a depreciating number of schools that produce graduates that would actually earn back the money that they spent for college. The study also showed that only 17 schools that produce graduates has this kind of income. These said graduates would produce incomes that would out-earn high school graduates by an average of $1.2 million return of income or ROI. The rest of the 500 schools have very low ROI. College nowadays would otherwise be considered a very flimsy investment according to the study.

I wasn’t aware that education was an investment with a necessary return. I thought the benefit of college was to be a more educated person.
