Earnings and unemployment rates by educational attainment

More education leads to employment and more money. I am searching for something to motivate students to do better, to do more than “just get by.” I foresee suffering and unhappiness in the future of those who subscribe to “Cs get degrees.” Perhaps this simple chart will serve as a wake up call.

On the other hand, not everyone is cut out for college. Unfortunately, manufacturing jobs have been sent overseas and vocational jobs may not pay well. So, it does not look good for those who lack the will or ability to do well in college.

The choice may be simple for our youth: do well in college or live with a lower standard of living.
