Counterpoint

It appears there is a need for dissent.

In my most recent post, I shared a Times Op-Ed suggesting that college isn’t worthwhile for many.

But the authors of the study cited actually disagree with it.

So here is the study itself. Take from it what you will.

From a summary thereof:

The research by Bartik and his colleague Brad Hershbein finds huge returns on four-year college degrees for all students, including those from lower-income families. For a typical student, a degree is worth about $500,000.

Not everyone will go to college, and those who don’t still need a path to economic security, but college is still one of the best choices for many.
