A part of the Chicago Ideas Week, this debate is the first Intelligence Squared U.S. debate to be held live in Chicago. The herd mentality that assumes college is the only path to reaching one's full potential is under fire. Student loan debt has surpassed credit card debt, unemployment for those with bachelor's degrees is at an all-time high, and entrepreneurs like the founders of Facebook and Microsoft prove that extraordinary success is possible without it. But recent studies show that college is economically beneficial even to those whose jobs don't require it. Is it still the best way to ensure social mobility, or is America's love affair with higher education unjustified?
