Education Does Not Always Pay
First; this is not scientific by any means. But, it is a good illustration of why I have always maintained that a college degree may be nice, but not always a requirement.
Can you believe there are degrees that will COST you money to try and earn a living with? They don't make mention in the article about whether or not the cost includes the cost of the education or not, but I'll guess it does.
The second chart is even more interesting; Arts, Humanities and Education; the three degrees that seem to give you the least return for your buck. They also seem to be the easiest to earn, or to get a PhD in with very little actual intelligence.
Spend 4 years somewhere partying and at the end they hand you a worthless piece of paper.
And then you take that worthless piece of paper and get a teaching job with it.
Do you see why this country is going to Hell in a handbasket?
