The Education Bubble

Michael Margolis @getstoried

There’s a massive Education Bubble that’s brewing, with people coming out of college $100-200K in debt, prepared for a world that not longer exists, with degrees not worth the paper its printed on. Then there’s the DIY and self-education movement, especially for entrepreneurs and creatives who are continuing to reinvent the playing field of their careers as they go along. Not to mention a $6 billion self-help industry and growing. Which is why online education is also blowing up. Social media is a force for self-learning if not self-actualization…exploring the process of identity formation, creative voice, and self-definition.
