We can’t vouch for the validity of the study or the accuracy of the sources, but it’s still nice to see some positive talk related to higher education these days. The online publication Inside Higher Ed reports on a recent federal jobs report showing “a rock-bottom” unemployment rate of 2.8 percent for workers who hold at least a four-year degree. The article also quotes a Georgetown University expert who fiercely disagrees with the whole the-economic-value-of-college-is-overrated meme that had recently gained some traction.
