Until I saw this post from Joanne Jacobs at Community College Spotlight. Let's look at the bullets:
- Bachelor degree recipients at the 11 public universities averaged $36,552 in 2009
- Associate degree recipients from the community colleges averaged $47,708 in 2009
Even private colleges and university graduates earn more - $44,558 compared to the $36,552. When asked why, FIU's provost says that those schools focus on degrees where people can make a living.
If you are going to invest a ton of money in a car, you want to make sure it can get you somewhere - - why don't we take the same care in choosing a major?
