More and more American students are facing enormous tuition debt and low job prospects after graduating from college. Some find the solution of finding work abroad, but millions are settling for less. Is the US raising a generation of janitors with PhDs?Modern-day post-college survival is no joke. "I have $76000 dollars in college debt," said unemployed college graduate Larry Hales, who has been unsuccessfully looking for work for over a year and a half. Haunted by tuition debt, Hales is one of America's college degree owners facing a job market that has long ago thrown out the welcome mat. RT on Facebook: www.facebook.com RT on Twitter: twitter.com

Campus Progress is working to highlight disturbing practices at some for-profit colleges across the country. For-profit schools currently serve 10 percent of US students but account for 25 percent of federal student aid—and 44 percent of student loan defaults. While there are some quality programs at for-profit schools, too many for-profit programs are marked by skyrocketing tuition, high dropout rates, and insurmountable debt for many students. The Department of Education has proposed regulations to enforce current laws that require programs, like those offered at for profit colleges, to prepare students for "gainful employment." Visit www.campusprogress.org to find out more about the work Campus Progress and other organizations are doing to ensure that the Department of Education's proposed "gainful employment" rule is implemented.

Eight US colleges comprise the 'Ivy League' -- an elite group of private universities that enjoy a reputation for providing excellent education and attracting top students. It is interesting to note that the term 'ivy league' originally referred not to academics but to sports. The original Ivy League brought together not minds, but football teams. That said, these eight universities have some educational and institutional traits in common beyond their athletics programs. All are long-established, highly selective private universities; all are in the Northeastern US; all benefit from sizeable endowments and generous alumni financial support; all are highly selective -- and all provide need blind aid that often make them less expensive than in-state public colleges. Is an Ivy League school right for you? If so, which one?
Type of College Student Health Insurance Plans If you think college students do not need health insurance, you are wrong. Students should be provided with health insurance to ensure that their healthcare are always covered so that they would not end up in emergency room every time they are ill or involved in an accident. Nowadays, many colleges understand the need of having college student health insurance. Therefore these colleges require their prospective students to provide proof of health insurance as a condition of enrollment. Health insurance for college students is usually a kind of group insurance provided through an insurance company appointed by the college. Office visits are usually free, as for other services covered by the insurance would depend on the kind of insurance picked by the college. So it is wise if you scrutinize the insurance plan offered at the college before you sign up with it. College student health insurance at least has three kinds of plans to choose. These are school-sponsored plan, family plan, or an individual plan. Family plan usually covers an employer's dependant who is in college. Do the services only provided at the college health centers? What if you have to get medical attentions outside the health centers?
Montgomery College graduated its largest class of students ever in a ceremony held May 21, 2010 in Rockville, Maryland. Of the more than 2500 students who completed graduation requirements for associates degrees, apprenticeships or certificates, more than 750 students participated in the morning ceremony. The Montgomery College class of 2010 is diverse in age and experience. Most graduates attended Montgomery County Public Schools, but others attended high schools abroad or as far away as California. Some took alternative paths to college through homeschooling or by earning their General Equivalency Diplomas (GED). The oldest graduates were born during Harry Trumans presidency. The youngest graduate will soon turn 18 years old. While many students take two years to complete their associates degree, one of this years graduates has taken 27 years to earn her degree. One of the memorable moments of this years ceremony was the posthumous awarding of an associate of arts degree to Lorrayne Jackson, who passed away a few weeks ago. Jacksons daughter, Damia Elaine Woodson, accepted the degree on behalf of her mother as the College community honored Jacksons memory with a standing ovation. During the commencement ceremony, Dr. Hercules Pinkney, interim president, urged graduates to complete two final homework assignments before leaving Montgomery College. First, take great pride in your Montgomery College education and feel confident that you are well prepared for the next stage ...

Complete video at: fora.tv George Leef, Director of Research at the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy, deconstructs several common arguments that propose the need for increasing the number of college graduates in the US Leef argues that the number of people with college degrees currently outweighs the number of jobs that require them, and suggests that graduating more people will only lead to "credential inflation." ----- The rapid growth of China, India, Brazil and other emerging powers has dramatically altered the complexion of the global economy in recent years. At the same time, rising deficits, high trade imbalances, a declining dollar, and a lingering economic downturn have placed America's position within the global economy in peril-and have policymakers deliberating over the keys to America's economic future. One area often cited as critical to the nation's future economic strength is higher education, particularly that America must dramatically increase the number of college-educated citizens to remain a leading economic power. - Miller Center for Public Affairs George Leef is Director of Research at the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy in Raleigh, NC.
