John Stossel tackles this question and other “lies” about higher education. A college education can help advance, even start, your career, but it isn’t for everyone. Not everyone is well suited for college and that’s okay. Bill Gates dropped out of college to start Microsoft. There are presidents who didn’t graduate from college.
Understand that there are real opportunity costs with going to college, not to mention the huge tuition bill you’ll likely pay using borrowed funds. It’s not uncommon to graduate from college with tens of thousands in student loans.
So, before you sign up, take a few minutes to learn if college is right for you. You can start by watching this episode of John Stossel. Best of luck!
