“According to the National Student Clearinghouse, there are many more people in their 20s than in any other age group right now, who have some college credit and no degree. So we’re sending all of these people to college and they’re leaving before they have a degree. And if you look at any employment ad, nobody ever says, some college credit, no degree necessary. Right?” said Jeff Selingo.
