Can you put a price tag on education? Colleges and universities can. The cost of getting a higher education in America has become a growing problem, putting many of the country’s young adults in debt before they even enter the work force. This problem affects more than just the students and their families; the pressure that college debt has put on the economy is in no way helping the current recession. For my project, I looked into the causes of growing college expenses, as well as the effects on the overall economy. The numbers are staggering. I hope my infographic can be a call to action to address this issue, before it is too late. There is no longer an option; College = Bust.
