Bachelor's degree or more essential for post-recession recovery

Individuals with a bachelor's degree or higher have stronger employment rates than before the recession. Those with less than a bachelor's degree have not fully recovered.

While unemployment is at an all-time low, many individuals are still struggling. Those without a college education have still not pulled out of the recession.

Recent research from Brookings shows that nationally, only individuals with a bachelor's degree or higher are better off than they were in 2007.
