Income mobility in the US, the hallmark of the American Dream, has never been lower.
Students across the country are more worried than ever that their investment in the pursuit of higher education will pay off. The student loan crisis is having a multi-generational impact on millions of American families.
When we were young we were taught that if we worked hard, got good grades, get into a good school and graduate, we can find that well-paying job that puts us on a path to dramatically improve our life and economic standing. But in today’s rapidly changing world, the investment in the pursuit of higher education has become less certain than ever before.
While 50% of students fail to graduate, most are carrying their student loans forward, leading to a staggering $1.5 Trillion in student loan debt.
