Americans on Higher Education: Give Me a Good Job, Not Just a Degree

Of the roughly 231 million Americans age 18 or over, nearly all (97%) agree that having a certificate or degree beyond high school is important. Still, there are about 168 million U.S. adults who currently do not have a postsecondary degree -- a number no one is happy with. But of those U.S. adults surveyed in the Gallup/Lumina Foundation poll who currently don’t have degrees, 41%, or about 68 million when extrapolated to the U.S. population, tell us they have thought about getting one in the last 12 months. And a whopping 21% of that group tells us they are “very likely” to do so. Clearly, Americans value higher education.

The All-Out War for Good Jobs

"Humans used to desire love, money, food, shelter, safety, peace, and freedom more than anything else. The last 30 years have changed us. Now people want to have a good job, and they want their children to have a good job. This changes everything for world leaders.
