The Value Of A College Degree

The House Committee on Education and Labor issued a report entitled Don’t Stop Believin’: The Value of a College Degree. It states that a college degree is still well worth the cost, noting that bachelor’s degree holders earn up to $1 million more and associate’s degree holders up to $400,000 more than high school graduates during their work lives. Expanded access and increased affordability are goals highlighted in the report that may be addressed in the next reauthorization of the Higher Education Act
