The Great Recession has done something that seemed unimaginable just a few years ago: it has dented America’s faith in the returns on higher education

In 2008, 81% of adults thought college was a good investment. That number dropped to 57%, according to a national survey of 3,000 Americans commissioned by Country Financial and compiled by Rasmussen Reports. Americans are also increasingly embittered over student debt. In 2011, 31% thought more than $20,000 in student loan debt was too much. In 2012, that number jumped to 42%.

Why invest in this when the government has chosen to obliterate the entry level jobs market for such positions(via the various visa programs)?

It seems that the change that Obama has brought about is turning the US into an anti-education nation.
