Further evidence that the “go to school then get a good job” myth is gone in the Information Age.

Derek Thompson with The Atlantic wrote on July 26th 2017 “the college premium—the extra income one should expect from getting a bachelor’s degree—is higher than it was in the 1990s, but it’s stopped growing this century for young workers.” Amidst his other points he presses that the college debt bubble is not going to “pop” but slowly “hiss” itself out. Enrollment is down, tuition prices are slowing, and it’s the for-profit college’s that Derek says are on the chopping block. Though college can be a great experience and help secure a solid job, with no promise of actually attaining anything but massive debt, the narrative is changing.
