“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”
– Sherlock Holmes, from a book by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
On several occasions of late, I have been to the Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics (KCEWS) website.
The site contains two July 2014 special reports by Dr. Charles McGrew that are especially informative. They are “No College = Low Wages, Kentucky High School Graduates Who Do Not Attend College Face Limited Employment Opportunities And Low Wages” and the accompanying report “More College = More Money, Kentucky Postsecondary Feedback Reports Reveal Employment, Earnings, and Continuing Education For Our Public University Graduates.”
