Go to College
More people have been going to college in the last 20 years, and those who went not only are more likely to have jobs, but also to earn more money. That is the picture painted in a report called The Condition of Education 2013, from the U.S. Department of Education. The report also notes that women graduate from college at higher rates than men. More adults overall—one third—have a bachelor’s degree today, compared to barely a quarter of adults in 1990. These findings are consistent with other research that points to a worthwhile plan for the future: to find and stay employed, and to earn more, go to college.
