Many believe that with the rise in economy causing a drastic rise in tuition and other cost that college is not worth all the costs. As seen on Colorado State University Global Campus website, in an article called, Is College worth it?, state, "It can be easy for employers to reach the conclusion that degree holders are more efficient employees, since college may provide students with a greater ability to think analytically, and the discipline to see multiple tasks through from start to finish".

As I am a college student at Norco College, it is really of paying a lot of money for a college life and won't get anything from it. maybe an associate degree but this degree is not worth it. According to Money CNN website, Heather Long wrote an article names "Is college worth it? Goldman Sachs says maybe not," he says "Many students are better off not going to mediocre colleges -- ones that rank in the bottom 25% of all universities -- Goldman says in a new report. They earn less, on average, than high school graduates." from my experience as a college student, and to be honest with you, I didn't feel that I learned a lot in all the classes that I payed for it--as well as i payed a lot of money for the first year because of my status as I wasn't a California resident.

Not many students understand that with a degree comes the benefits of higher paying jobs and careers. As stated by Jonathan Rothwell, a writer for the Brookings website, in his article, The Economic Value of Education, on November 12th 2013, "...that workers with more education typically earn significantly higher wages and are far more likely to be employed than workers who have no post-secondary education".

you are totaly right are totaly right, however, there are a lot of college student who are working in job that doesn't required any college degree. According to the Department of Labor, as of 2008, 17 million college graduates were in positions that did not require a college education. Also, 1 in 3 college graduates had a job that required a high school diploma or less in 2012 and that's by Richard Vedder, "Going to College Is a Mistake for Many," published in 2011. My friend she didn't get any college degree, and her income is way higher than my income--she just finished her high school. Guess what, her high school even is not form HERE as well.

Even with students believing that the student debt is not worth the hardships and obstacles despite the clear benefits to their future, as stated by Lindsey Beran, a student from the honors program at John Carroll University, in her essay, True Value of a College Education, " Education is a long-term investment; individuals give up earnings for the 3 years they attend school andtypically earn back this money and more, but this occurs years in the future, not immediatelyfollowing schooling".

yes, its worth it to pay a lot of money and get an associate degree or a bachelor degree, but According to a 2012 Federal Reserve Study, "30-year-olds who have never taken out a student loan are now more likely to own homes than those who have taken out loans. Auto loans are also trending down at faster rates for those with student debt history than for those without." That is a fact nowadays, that unfortunately, students get loans for their studies to complete it, and then at the end the need to pay it off without living their life or getting married or even being independent.

2 points to Pro (Conduct, S&G), 2 points to Con (Sources). Reasons for voting decision: It is hard to understand the con point of view with such arguments.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter doesn"t explain any of the point allocations. If there is difficulty in understanding a set of arguments, it must be clarified why that is the case, and why that results in these point allocations.
