Hosted by

College, long considered the golden ticket to success, is losing its luster. Tuition at public schools has quadrupled in the past 35 years. National student debt now tops $1 trillion. And simply having a degree doesn’t guarantee a job to pay off those loans. Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been floating debt-free college plans. But in the meantime, many are questioning whether college is worth it anymore.
