According to Michael Horn, co-host of the podcasts “Future U” and “Class Disrupted,” if you graduate, the college experience is still typically worth it.
“On average, you are likely to get a better job, have better lifetime earnings, have a lot of success, and friends, and health and so forth,” Horn said. “But if you don’t graduate, and 45% of students roughly who go do not graduate from a four-year college within six years, then it’s a very different story.”
Horn, the author of several books on education, including “Choosing College: How to Make Better Learning Decisions Throughout Your Life,” said that, because of the rising cost of tuition, parents have changed how they think about going to school.
