How the Recession Changed the Reasons Students Go to College - Education - GOOD

I've been in college during economic times both good (mid-late 90s) and bad (2009-current). According to a UCLA survey, more students are now saying they're attending college to ready themselves for the workforce, instead of indicating they're there to pursue their interests. I don't know if there's a causation argument to be made, but simply the increasing cost of college is surely causing more students to think about the financial return on their investment.
