A Bright Spot in Higher Ed

    “While earning a bachelor’s degree is still the best financial decision in terms of lifetime earnings . . .”
    This statement is refuted by graduation rates, debt upon graduation and increasing under-employment.
    What’s needed is a way to separate those who will actally benefit from a baccalaureate degree from those who would, literally, be better off in “trade school”. The advent of on-line education provides a path to greatly reducing the cost of certification, but appears to be largely focused on degrees. This doesn’t make sense.
