An interesting article brought up an important point about college costs. People are well aware of the high cost of college, but how does one calculate the cost of not attending college?
As writer Derek Thompson puts it:
“In the last 30 years, the typical college tuition has tripled. But over the exact same period, the earnings gap
between college-educated adults and high school graduates has also tripled. In 1979, the wage difference was 75%. In 2003, it was 230%.”
