    - President Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1939

    - President Obama

    Actual amount the average college graduate earns in their lifetime including college fees and variant costs.

  • 9. 2. Myth: college leads to awesome jobs
    “17M Americans with college degrees are doing jobs that require less than the skill levels associated with a bachelor’s degree.”

    Not everyone can go to Harvard

    Here’s the reality...

    $3.7B (2009 revenue)
  • 13.

    Having a college degree will notensure that you will be successful.
  • 16. #1
    Who made up the rule that we
    have to attend college for 4 years?

  • 19. #4
    Here’s an even easier solution.
    Why not go back to the true goal of education:
    LEARNING
  • 20. STOP BUILDING APPS,
    START DISRUPTING INDUSTRIES
  • 21. "The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."
    - Albert Einstein
