Is College Really Worth it?
Is College Really Worth it?

Listen
AIR DATE: November 6, 2013

The cost of going to college is rising. No matter what the rate of inflation, tuition has been going up four or five percent annually. So are colleges pricing themselves out of the market? Is the debt burden so great that it negates the additional earning power of a college degree? And should the community be putting more money into state and community colleges because it is a societal benefit? Beth Akers argues we need to re-think how we look at the investment in a college education. She talks with us ahead of her lecture at UNLV.
