Students Delay College Because They Lack Money

The economy leads one third of young adults to delay college
The State of Young America report, published by non-profit policy organization Demos, indicates that more than a third of young adults, ages 25 to 34, are currently delaying starting or returning to post-secondary degree programs because of the weak economy. Tamara Draut, co-author of The State of Young America report, lists three reasons young adults are delaying their education because of the economy: “One, the cost is really expensive for young people, but two, if they have a job, they’re probably unlikely to get rid of that job to pursue schooling. Three, there’s a general unease about what is going to happen.”
