A four-year college degree was a great thing to have in the 1940s, but today it has become standard. Unfortunately, the standard price of education has skyrocketed since then. In the 40s you could get a four-year college education for a fraction of the cost you face today. Currently, the average college student graduates with $25,000 of student loan debt. That’s more debt than it would have cost your grandparents to get a degree in the past.
This infographic provides a side-by-side comparison of the cost of a college education in each generation.
