Poll: 57% say college isn't worth it for the price

Of 2,142 adults surveyed, 57% said the higher education system in the U.S. fails to provide students with good value for the money they and their families spend. An even larger group (75%) said college is too expensive for most Americans to afford.

While the price tag may be high — this year’s college grads are the most indebted in history — still, an overwhelming majority (86%) report college was a good investment for them personally.
