And you're right that this particular story (the original article) isn't a HUGE sector of the population. BUT, the general public faces this issue in larggeee numbers (hence the Obama student forgiveness talk). College is just too damn expensive these days and the ROI simply isn't there unless you're getting a very specific skill set or going to a very high-caliber school where you'll make contacts that will serve you well int he professional world.

There are countless studies which examine the ROI of going straight from high school into the working world and the additional income seen through the "investment" of four years in college.
Leaders love to tout that a college graduate earns a million more than a HS graduate. Wasn't this the ROI analysis students were to rely on?
