College Conspiracy

Synopsis
This video sets out to debunk the belief that Americans with college degrees earn $1 million more in lifetime income compared to high school graduates without a college degree. It analyses the total cost of attending college by factoring in not just rapidly rising tuition expenses, but also the interest payments on student loans,and the lost income that college students would have earned if they worked at an average entry-level job that doesn’t require a college degree.
