Is College Education Worth It?
By Walter E. Williams
August 9, 2017


August is the month when parents bid farewell to not only their
college-bound youngsters but also a sizable chunk of cash for tuition. More
than 18 million students attend our more than 4,300 degree-granting
institutions. A question parents, their college-bound youngsters and
taxpayers should ask: Is college worth it?

Let’s look at some of the numbers. According to the National Conference of
State Legislatures, “when considering all first-time undergraduates, studies
have found anywhere from 28 percent to 40 percent of students enroll in at
least one remedial course. When looking at only community college students,
several studies have found remediation rates surpassing 50 percent.” Only 25
percent of students who took the ACT in 2012 met the test’s readiness
benchmarks in all four subjects (English, reading, math and science). Just 5
percent of black students and 13 percent of Hispanic students met the
readiness benchmarks in all four subjects. The NCSL report says, “A U.S.
Department of Education study found that 58 percent of students who do not
require remediation earn a bachelor’s degree, compared to only 17 percent of
students enrolled in remedial reading and 27 percent of students enrolled in
remedial math.”

The fact of business is that colleges admit a far greater number of students
than those who test as being college-ready. Why should students be admitted
to college when they are not capable of academic performance at the college
level? Admitting such students gets the nation’s high schools off the hook.
The nation’s high schools can continue to deliver grossly fraudulent
education — namely, issue diplomas that attest that students can read, write
and compute at a 12th-grade level when they may not be able to perform at
even an eighth- or ninth-grade level.

You say, “Hold it, Williams. No college would admit a student who couldn’t
perform at an eighth- or ninth-grade level.” During a recent University of
North Carolina scandal, a learning specialist hired to help athletes found
that during the period from 2004 to 2012, 60 percent of the 183 members of
the football and basketball teams read between fourth- and eighth-grade
levels. About 10 percent read below a third-grade level. These were students
with high-school diplomas and admitted to UNC. And it’s not likely that UNC
is the only university engaging in such gross fraud.

Many students who manage to graduate don’t have a lot to show for their time
and money. New York University professor Richard Arum, co-author of
“Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses,” says that his
study shows that more than a third of students showed no improvement in
critical thinking skills after four years at a university. That observation
is confirmed by the many employers who complain that lots of recent
graduates cannot seem to write an email that will not embarrass the company.
In 1970, only 11 percent of adult Americans held college degrees. These
degree holders were viewed as the nation’s best and brightest. Today, over
30 percent hold college degrees, with a significant portion of these
graduates not demonstrably smarter or more disciplined than the average
American. Declining academic standards and grade inflation tend to confirm
employer perceptions that college degrees say little about job readiness.

What happens to many of these ill-prepared college graduates? If they manage
to become employed in the first place, their employment has little to do
with their degree. One estimate is that 1 in 3 college graduates have a job
historically performed by those with a high-school diploma or the
equivalent. According to Richard Vedder, who is a professor of economics at
Ohio University and the director of the Center for College Affordability and
Productivity, we had 115,000 janitors, 16,000 parking lot attendants, 83,000
bartenders and about 35,000 taxi drivers with bachelor’s degrees in 2012.

The bottom line is that college is not for everyone. There is absolutely no
shame in a youngster’s graduating from high school and learning a trade.
Doing so might earn him much more money than many of his peers who attend
college.

Well ... alas ... for 95% that's probably true.

A college diploma doesn't pay off like it used to.
I don't mean grads get crappy salaries - but that
a rapidly-increasing numer of grads get NO
salaries. A lot of what they're being taught just
does not, will not, translate into a cushy job.

I think a lot of industries are now realizing that

They'd rather have Indians or computer-nerd

except smoking dope at protest marches.
