Résumé :

What is the value of a college degree if it leaves you with few job prospects in a tough economy and buried in debt? This book asks the burning question on every prospective student, parent, and new graduate's mind. Student loan debt in the United States crossed the $1 trillion mark in 2011. To say that the cost of a four-year college education is inflated on many campuses would be an understatement, and that education bubble is about to burst. The author, a journalist and editor-in-chief of the Chronicle for Higher Education, argues that colleges can no longer sell a four-year degree as the ticket to success in life. This work exposes the dire pitfalls in the current state of higher education for anyone concerned with the intellectual and financial future of America.
