Is Starting College and Not Finishing Really That Bad?

For our group titled - Postsecondary Completion, this is an interesting title for discussion. The following is exercpted from the OVAE Connection Issue 168 from September 19, 2013. As you read the report, it mentions that dropping out of college is certainly not advised but going to college has a better return-on-investment than not attending college at all and better employment outcomes do correspond with some college education. This report also solidifes the importance of college and career readiness for our students. Your thoughts?
