Modeling Relationships: The Cost of College

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

With more Americans – young and old – pursuing a college education, the increasing cost of college tuition can leave many graduates burdened with debt and struggling to find meaningful employment in their field of choice. Given these realities, is college really worth the price?

In this eye-opening infographic, compare the cost of tuition over time to employment rates and job growth by education. In the accompanying classroom activity, students predict the cost of four years of college tuition and discuss the idea of whether college a solid investment. They use the infographic, extrapolate tuition costs for their own college years, and revisit whether college is worth it using data to support their arguments. DOWNLOAD:http://to.pbs.org/1vRB5uJ
