NEW ProCon.org Website! – Is a College Education Worth It?

NEW ProCon.org Website!Is a College Education Worth It? – Our 48th website explores the pros and cons in the debate over
college education. Proponents of college education say that college is
worth it because college graduates have higher employment rates, bigger
salaries, and more work benefits than high school graduates. They say
college graduates also have better interpersonal skills, live longer,
have healthier children, and have proven their ability to achieve a
major milestone. Opponents of college education say that college is not
worth it because the debt from college loans is too high and delays
graduates from saving for retirement, buying a house, or getting
married. They say many successful people never graduated from college
and that many jobs, especially trades jobs, do not require college
degrees.
