A recent survey of parents finds college not worth the price to them. Only one in five parents of prospective college students believe that the cost of a four year degree is with the value. That translates to 21 percent of parents. High school counselors were slightly more enthusiastic; 37 percent of them believed strongly that the cost is worth the value.
The survey was conducted by Kaplan Test Prep and Money Magazine. The object was to understand how people view the value of a college education.
