Is A College Education Worth It?

Parents always want the best for their kids, and that usually involves saving for their kids’ college tuition, especially if those parents didn’t have a chance to finish college or even go to college at all. But is college all it’s cracked up to be? Here are some pros and cons.

PROS

1. College graduates earn more money than those with only a high school diploma. It’s been proven that college grads make twice and three times (with an advanced degree) than students with high school diplomas.

2. College graduates have better job ops and more of them.

3. Kids meet students from outside their neighborhoods and as a result, become worldly. If all a child knows in school are the kids from his community, then that can be limiting. Interacting with others from different social, religious, and ethnic backgrounds serves to broaden your child’s experience, empathy, and tolerance.
