Back to School

When it comes to going back to school, those who do not have a bachelor’s degree are more likely to return to college than those who have a four-year degree. The desire to go back to school is significantly higher among Black Americans, as 43 percent of Blacks said they would return to school compared to 18 percent of whites.
