Update on the College Bubble

I came across a fascinating article in The Atlantic that argues the college “bubble” – rising college tuition prices coupled with stagnant household income growth and student debt – is slowly leaking instead of bursting.   It offers the following reasons for the leak:

  1. The next generation high school grads after the Millennials is smaller.
  2. There are too many schools.
  3. A dramatic implosion of “for-profit” colleges.

The article has a unique take on how the university industry got here, and what it can do now.  For help with your higher education or other planning goals, schedule a meeting by clicking below, contact Ashley Kopmeyer  – akopmeyer@makinglifecount.com, or call (913) 345-1881.
