The Value of College

Pew Research Center
Year: 
2011
The Value of College is a survey of college presidents and the public (with an oversampling of parents) to determine what monetary and personal value they put on a college degree - both for themselves and for current students. While a majority of Americans (57%) say the higher education system in the U.S. fails to provide students with good value for the money they and their families spend. An even larger majority—75%—says college is too expensive for most Americans to afford. At the same time, however, an overwhelming majority of college graduates—86%—say that college has been a good investment for them personally.
