Cost Vs Benifits of going back to school
By Rudy Armstrong
This article as a senior is one to read. In the article "Study Up on Going Back to School" by Ruth Mantell is about the benefits of going to school or going to work in a recession. With this said, more education can lead to hire wages. As according to a report from the Census Bureau, "In 2006, among workers 18 and older, those with less than a high-school diploma earned an average of $20,873, compared with $31,071 for those with a high-school diploma, $56,788 for a bachelor's degree, and $82,320 for a master's, professional or doctoral degree." That is a huge difference, but maybe school isn't for everyone. In some cases its okay to leave college with a bachelors degree rather than a masters, if your Field of concentrations attends to more work experience than actual school learner. For example, if you had a degree in web designers it would be more helpful to have hands on work experience and not going back to school for your masters. But on the other hand, if you were to be pursuing a doctor degree and you stop at school after you undergrad and not go to graduate school, that would be a bad decision. Because the cost benefit of staying in school as a doctor is greater than staying in school if you were a web designer. This is just an example and you and fit your self in accordingly.
