Women Overtake Men in College Degrees

Updated: Jul 6, 2018

The following is a quote from The Atlantic on August 8, 2017:

"Where men once went to college in proportions far higher than women—58 percent to 42 percent as recently as the 1970s—the ratio has now almost exactly reversed.

This fall, women will comprise more than 56 percent of students on campuses nationwide, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Some 2.2 million fewer men than women will be enrolled in college this year. And the trend shows no sign of abating. By 2026, the department estimates, 57 percent of college students will be women."


We have to ask ourselves, why this huge change? Is it the necessity of having two incomes to support a family in today's economy? Or is it the result of women recognizing that without an education and the ability to support themselves, if a marriage ends in divorce that they will be economically disadvantaged for the remainder of their lives? This issue is complex and will be addressed later.
