    The job crisis is probably temporary as the economy has always had ups and downs. What is permanent is that the cost of higher education keeps going up while the quality of the education remains static and the salaries of those paying for school remain static. If the student is middle class or from a lower socioeconomic background, the student is likely to be priced out of an education (whether parents pay or the student pays in the form of student loan repayment). I have been admitted since 1993 and spent my life in public service. I have only started to hit the principal of my student loans for Law School now. The cost is absolutely ridiculous. Soon only rich kids will be lawyers or doctors or even college grads. Its a shame.
