Is College Worth It?

With undergraduate college tuition and housing costs estimated at nearly $13,000 a year at public universities and more than $32,000 annually at private institutions, not everyone thinks the degree is money well spent. Seventy percent of people surveyed by Pew Research on May 17 said college is too expensive for most Americans to afford while 57 percent said colleges fail to give students good value for the money spent. Despite overall criticism of college expenses, 94 percent of parents who had at least one child under the age of 18 said they expect their child to go to college.
