(NaturalNews) Statistics are now showing that only one in three college entrants will complete and utilize a college degree. Education is important, yes, but the statistics are beginning to point out that a formal degree doesn't work for most. Having a college degree is rapidly losing value in America. This is becoming more evident, especially in the recent development of a McDonald's want ad posted in Winchendon, Massachusetts. This McDonald's want ad calls for a cashier, but only a cashier who possesses a bachelor's degree.

What does this say about America's education system?

As McDonald's begins calling on their cashiers to have a bachelor's degree, what does this say about America's formal education system?

Is the economy so overrun with monopolistic fast food giants, that college
graduates can't find better ways to utilize their higher education?

What types of skills are needed in America? Are college students actually attaining true life skills?

Is innovation being driven out of America's young people?

Is unemployment so rampant that a fast food job has become a competitive, degree-seeking market?

As thousands of college graduates venture into the marketplace, fighting for McDonald's cashier jobs requiring degrees, is higher education bringing new generations of students a false hope, a false sense of security?

Higher education is being dumbed down

Labor Department data suggests that about 284,000 college graduates are currently working minimum wage jobs. This figure has doubled since 2007. These graduates make up 8% of the minimum wage work force, which includes 37,000 or more who have advanced degrees.

Evan Feinberg, president of the advocacy group Generation Opportunity, believes that the growing uselessness of a formal education is the cause and effect of government intervention in the economy and education.

"Sadly we've taxed-and-spent our way to an economy in which there's intense competition for just about any job. Combine that with government meddling in the student loan market that has artificially inflated the cost of higher education and young people are getting screwed over even worse than the country overall."

Skyrocketing education prices give wake to cheaper alternatives

Not only is higher education wasted and not utilized to its fullest potential, the price of it is skyrocketing beyond reasonable means. According to the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, average tuition in the past twenty-five years has raised 440 percent, more than four times the rate of inflation.

An online entrepreneur and founder of eduFire, believes that low-cost online educational opportunities will force dramatic change in future higher education. His idea, eduFire, provides affordable online classes and tutoring.

He goes on to say that, "The days of jamming 500 students into lecture halls supervised by graduate students and charging them several hundred dollars per credit hour for the 'privilege' of learning in this fashion may be numbered."

Simple strategies for debt free education and creative income

There are more exciting ways to make a living other than minimum wage fast food jobs. Beginning a business start up idea on the side will provide many new opportunities, networking, and income potential.

Free information exists online and in libraries. As communication, travel, and technology expands rapidly, a free education is becoming easy to obtain. One can pursue any subject they desire, from books and mentors.

There are also ways to obtain a college degree debt-free. Here is a place where you can find helpful information for a debt free education, as taught by Dave Ramsey: http://www.daveramsey.com When Mr. Ramsey hires someone on his team, he says that a degree is only part of the equation. "Attributes like desire, attitude, diligence, people skills, and on-the-job experience are extremely important."

To avoid costly higher education that leads to a dead end minimum wage McDonald's cashier job, prospective job seekers must become avid learners of their topic of study. They must apply themselves head on, know exactly what they want, possess courage and integrity, and gain life skills that bring value to the marketplace.
