At this stage of the “Information Age,” few people dispute the fact that a college education is critical to finding, securing, and keeping a good job. But if that’s the case, why are so many adults who lack a degree hesitant to return to school?
IQS Research has done extensive research and discovered that — regardless of a person’s age, sex, or race — adults consistently cite four factors to explain why they are not returning to school to finish their degree.
- Tuition and expenses
- Inconvenient class schedules
- Not having enough time to study
- Being out of school for too long
