Higher Education Scam

For most students, a college education is not worth the cost they paid.

First, very few people can get a good paying job, i.e. support a family, with just a bachelor's degree in their major.   

Second, student loan debt payments far exceed what can be comfortably paid with a salary from an entry level job.

Third, the institutions that encourage the student to take or provide the loan have no vested interested in whether the student is able to pay back the loan.

Perhaps the government ought to pause the student loan program and address these issues before restarting the making student loans.
