Education & Earnings – Powerful Stats (Click on the graph)

Statistics for the Labor Statistics Department (May 2010)

Take a closer look at this graph from the Bureau of Labor Statistics comparing a person’s level of education in America to their earnings for the year 2010. It clearly show the powerful impact that a solid education plays in helping a person develop and succeed in their career. I have not seen a statistical piece for education any more compelling than this one and especially amidst a major economic recession in America. This is one to study and to pass on to others, especially young adults and teens.
