The most educated generation in American history has something to say about the value of the U.S. education system.
Just 13% of millennials said they agree or strongly agree with that statement that “higher education today is fine how it is” in a survey released by Washington, D.C.-based think tank New America this week. What’s more, a whopping 79% said they disagree or strongly disagree with that sentiment.
But their parents and grandparents are much more optimistic. About 28% of baby boomers said they agree or strongly agree that our higher education system is fine and 39% of members of the silent generation said they agree with that sentiment.
