With the rising tuition education is going to be very hard to acquire. So it is time for America to change and find a way to lower these ridiculous prices. A College Board report found that about 66% of students who earned a bachelor's degree in 2008 graduated with a substantial amount of debt. This proves that the cost of tuition is rising and in another report, it determined that the average debt of the class of 2008 owed $23,200. This was determined by the Project on student debt, a non profit organization.
The college opportunities compared to the past 20 years have increased tremendously since online distance learning has become an important gateway for education, especially for those who don’t have the time and convenience to attend a traditional college. According to College board, “The typical bachelor’s degree recipient can expect to earn about 73 percent more over a 40-year working life than the typical high school graduate earns over the same time period “. It’s almost impossible to get job in an economy that is in recession without a college education. Employers are demanding more of job candidates than ever before. The college degree is becoming the new high school diploma, the new minimum requirement.
As if the current prices weren’t bad enough on today’s students, according to the College Board’s annual report there is an annual jump of almost 10% in the cost of tuition at public universities (College Game). This increase may not seem like much at first, but add up the increases over the four or five year time span it takes to earn a degree and tuition will have risen roughly $1000 by the last year of school. This constant increase in college education is making it hard for many to attend college due to costs. The increasing cost of higher education leads students to have an increase in debt after graduation. Everyone in this room is enrolled in the University of Georgia.
Our society undervalues entrepreneurial work, trade skills, and it discourages young people from pursuing this type of education after high school. Now this isn’t a good thing for a few reasons. For example, tuition fees have gone through the roof to go to college over the last thirty years, and that means debts are increasing ridiculously. According to stats from CNBC, right now in the US, college related debts are over a trillion dollars. This debt is getting harder and harder to pay off too, because there are so limited jobs available for college graduates.
"Ways To Improve College Education"! Why College education is so important? America's colleges and universities are in crisis. They cost far too much: America spends thousands more per post-secondary student than any other OECD nation.

Dollar General in owned by Koldberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P (KKR) who own more than 79% of all shares in Dollar General. Some argue that part of the reason Dollar General has been so successful as of late is attributed to the economic crisis the United States experience during the second half of the 2000s.
