Why is going to college so important?

75% percent of all jobs require education and training beyond a high school diploma.

80% of the top 50 fastest-growing jobs will require education beyond high school and 40% of all new jobs will require at least an associate degree.

Jobs that require education beyond a high school diploma will account for 42 percent of projected new job growth through 2010.

75% of the current workforce will need significant retraining in coming years.

Students with associate degrees earn approximately $400,000 more during their lifetimes than high school graduates.
