Since 1980, the number of U.S. jobs requiring more education, experience, and training have more than doubled over jobs requiring less preparation.
There has been a 68% increase in jobs requiring more preparation.
Yet, Americans are still skeptical that college is the way to prepare for the working world:
- 16% of adults think a bachelor’s degree prepares students “very well”
- 21% think it prepares students “not too well”
- 8% believe it prepares students “not well at all”
