Students tend to see more value in their postsecondary education when it features coursework relevant to their jobs, according to a new survey of 340,000 people from Gallup and Strada Education Network.  Most (57%) graduates of nondegree vocational and technical programs strongly agreed their education was worth the price. That’s compared to 50% of respondents with graduate degrees, 48% with associate degrees and 40% with bachelor’s degrees who say the same.  Only about one-fourth of students who left college before completing a credential said it was worth the cost or strengthened their job candidacy.
