Are Skipping College

+ Jodie Adams Kirshner


Research Professor Jodie Adams Kirshner was a guest on WJR 760AM’s Let’s Go Michigan! discussing why some students are skipping college:

There is more and more that is the responsibility of families, of students. The other thing that has happened is a change of attitude towards the value of a degree, especially given the cost on families, a real questioning of whether it will pay off, even as most statistics show that increasingly in America, you do need a college degree to succeed.
