Education Sector, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank today announced a study titled “Debt to Degree: A New Way of Measuring College Success.”
The report notes: “The American higher education system is plagued by two chronic problems: dropouts and debt. Barely half of the students who start college get a degree within six years, and graduation rates at less-selective colleges often hover at 25 percent or less. At the same time, student loan debt is at an all-time high, recently passing credit card debt in total volume.
Education Sector is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that says its mission is to “challenges conventional thinking in education policy.”
