4&Out is a much-needed, long-overdue program given the nation’s dismal and costly national six-year college graduation rate that continues to hover around 55% (Student Clearinghouse Research Center, 2015). In addition, having to finance college for a fifth or sixth year (or beyond) has contributed to enormous student debt that reportedly grows nationally at an estimated $2,700 a second!
Extra time at college frequently results in unanticipated inroads on parents’ savings and retirement assets and needless diversion of family funds that would be better targeted for consumerism, retirement savings and the general economy. Extended stay at college is problematic for students and their families across the economic spectrum.
To assist us in the project’s earliest stages, we would appreciate your input regarding some of its anticipated benefits.
Once 4&Out debuts in the spring or summer of 2017, there will be no cost to become a subscriber.
