The Earning Power of a College Degree

"Today the United States ranks ninth among industrialized nations in higher-education attainment, in large measure because only 53 percent of students who enter college emerge with a bachelor’s degree, according to census data. And those who don’t finish pay an enormous price. For every $1 earned by a college graduate, someone leaving before obtaining a four-year degree earns only 67 cents."

from David Leonhardt's article "Rank Colleges, but Rank Them Right" in the New York Times, August 16, 2006.
