Higher school education makes you a lot more money

Get ready for some crazy numbers. The U.S. Census Bureau has released numbers that confirm that reality that getting a higher education provides you with far more income. It costs a great deal to get a college degree at most universities but it sure is worth it over the long run. If school education stopped in high school the average salary is a meager $28,000 a year. If school education includes a bachelor’s degree that number jumps to just over $51,000 a year. If the school education includes an advanced degree (masters, law, etc) that number jumps again to $74,000.

The differences are staggering. Invest another six years in your education after college and you’ll earn another $50,000 a year, which would quickly pay off whatever loans you had to take to get that degree. Now you can put an actual number value on higher school education.
