That title can’t be right, can it? That must be what you’re thinking. It’s what I thought when I read it from the recently published, Five Rules of the College and Career Game, published from the Center for Workforce Education, at Georgetown University. I encourage you to take a look at Rule #4: Less Education Can be Worth More, and see for yourself the evidence for this rule.
This kind of information - as it is presented in the graph - would make a great resource for teaching adult learners about both educational decision-making, and reading and interpreting graphs. Try it, and share what your experience is using this data with your learners. Were they as surprised as you are about this rule? Does it change their thinking about what their educational goals are for themselves?
