NightSide – Is College Still Worth The Cost?
BOSTON (CBS) – More and more college students are graduating with a mountain of debt. It has become normal for a twenty-two year old to walk away with $100,000 or more in debt before they even enter the “real world.” Is a college degree really worth putting yourself behind such a large financial obstacle? Dr. Brian Mitchell, former President of Bucknell University and founder of the Edvance Foundation, joins Dan to talk about the pitfalls of our current system and how colleges can stay viable in the future. Do you think students will start to shy away from taking on such massive debt? How can we make the system more efficient and accessible to everyone?
