Education Matters: The Rise of Diploma Mills
March 8, 2010
I think this chart helps to explain the explosion of and prevalence of diploma mills and other misrepresentations of academic credentials. In 2010, those without a high school degree are nearly four times more likely to be unemployed than those with a bachelor’s degree or higher. Those with a high school diploma, but no college experience are twice as likely to be unemployed than their counterparts with college degrees. And even those with some college experience, but no degree are nearly 38% more likely to be unemployed.
