All that is certain in college is debt at the end. Colleges don’t teach or students don’t learn. Students don’t get jobs that can pay off their debt.
The report reveals that there was a sizable decline between the winter-spring of 2007 and 2012 in the proportion of all young college graduates who worked in a college labor market job; a decline from 54.1 percent to 43.9 percent among 20- to 24-year-olds and 63.9 percent to 56.7 percent among 25- to 29-year-olds. A sizeable part of these declines occurred in the jobs recovery period over the last two years.
