what a college degree gets you

This is a great post from Good (@GOOD) on the value of a college education in 21st century. I strongly encourage everyone to explore the links in the article, all of which are quite striking.

The bottom line is what we already know, going to college is not a sound economic decision for all.  There may be other, non-economic benefits, but the no-excuses refrain of “go to college and get paid” may not be such a strong equation.
