What is your college degree worth.

A new report from the State Higher Education Executive Officers points out that skepticism about the value of a college degree is just off base: “…the evidence clearly demonstrates the value of a college education. According to our analysis of U.S. Census data, those who obtain a bachelor’s degree have a median income of $50,360 compared to a median of $29,423 for people with only a high school diploma. An associate’s degree leads to a median income of $38,607, more than $9,000 higher than a high school diploma. Those with a graduate degree have a median income of $68,064, 35.2 percent more than those with a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, The College Advantage: Weathering the Economic Storm, from the Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, shows that workers without a college degree have been significantly worse off in the recent economic downturn than those who have attended college. Four out of every five jobs lost

Joyce Dawkins

I was born and raised on the West Side of Chicago. I enjoy cooking, volunteering, traveling and reading. I am the mother of 2 beautiful children; TJ & Joyre. I am an adult student who returned to college 19 years later only to excel to heights I could not have imagined. In 2007 when I was laid off my job of 12 years, I didn’t hesitate to pray and ask God for direction. My desire over the years had been to complete my college education, but when I continued to earn more and more money, the desire for obtaining my degree was suppressed way back in my mind. Being laid off was the opportunity for God to give me the desire of my heart, it was the opportunity for me to trust him and trust that my being laid off was not a punishment, but a gentle push to get
