You may know someone who is (or might be) struggling with staying in school and who might be persuaded to continue with their education, if they heard a convincing argument.
I'll be adding links to this post that should be useful to them.
- Google "Education pays"
- "Education pays in higher earnings and lower unemployment rates" - Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)
- Figure 2: Median Annual Earnings by Level of Education and Age, 2005 - Edccollegeboard.com
- Google spreadsheet I created and you can use to compare lifetime earnings based upon your education level.
- (Send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) additional links to add to this list.)
Planning is also essential to our own personal development and fulfillment.
Before you consider stopping your education, make a budget for yourself - it represents your life values.
