In the end, there’s no such thing as a sure bet. When you graduate from college, you won’t find employers handing you jobs. You’ll still need to work. And you’ll still need some luck. A college education for most of us is simply pretty sound investment despite rising costs.

So the question really shouldn’t be whether or not we should go to college. We all should. The question now should be: How do we make college affordable and available to everyone? That is a question that’s not so easy to answer.

Really? We all should? Coming from an educator, some might consider this a trifle self-serving.
