What's the Value of a College Education?

This question is addressed in an article by Mary Pilon in The Wall Street Journal.  She explains how it may be worth a lot less than many assume.  She sites the high cost of college and the burdens of paying off college loan debt.

Pilon fails to discuss the lost opportunity for saving at a young age when someone goes to college and is paying off college debt well into their thirties.  Now, it's true that many young people do not save.  But the opportunity is there and the benefit is great for the few that do save in their twenties.  This was discussed in a Seeking Alpha article several months ago.
