Education Matters TWACH Charity Watch
Some communities do not have the resources to educate the children that live there. Overcrowded schools, limited funding for resources, and little to no plans for long-term education like college or training schools.
- Almost 6 in 10 students rely on financial support from their parents, family or spouse for funding their current year.
- About 4 in 10 students report using university-based scholarships, financial awards or bursaries to finance their education.
- The proportion of graduates who borrowed for post-secondary education (PSE) increased from 49% to 57% between 1995 and 2005.
- In the workplace, 85% of current jobs and 90% of new jobs require some or more college or post-secondary education.
Students across the country work hard to earn top marks, dreaming of the college they’ll attend and the education they’ll receive. Unfortunately, many of these students won’t be able to afford it. Most Americans think attaining a degree or certificate beyond high school is very important—and yet very few think that this goal is affordable.
