Julie Margetta Morgan, JD, PhD Biography

Title:
Education Counsel for US Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-NJ)
Position:
Pro to the question "Is a College Education Worth It?"
Reasoning:

“Plenty of evidence suggests that, on average, a college degree is worth it. College graduates make an average of 84 percent more over the course of a lifetime than those who only attend high school. The unemployment rate for young college grads is under 5 percent, compared to more than 13 percent for young people with only a high school diploma. And a recent Brookings Institution paper showed that the return on a college investment is more than that on almost any alternative, including stocks, bonds, gold, or the housing market.”
