Check out the new study on Young Americans’ Views on the Value of Higher Education.
This AP-NORC Center survey of Americans age 13-29 conducted using TrueNorth® explores how young people view the costs and benefits of pursuing higher education and the role their parents play in the process.
Although most young Americans ages 13-29 believe in the value and impact of higher education, nearly half say a high school diploma prepares people well for success in today’s economy, according to a new study by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. A majority of young people also express concern about the affordability of higher education and must take on debt to finance it. Over three-quarters believe the problem of higher education affordability is extremely or very serious, and a majority on both sides of the aisle support forgiving student loan debt for less affluent Americans.
