According to a new report from the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce, by 2020, two-thirds of American jobs will require at least some higher education, while 24 percent will require a high school diploma and just 12 percent will require less than a high school education. By comparison, “in 1973, nearly three out of four jobs required only a high school education or less.” (HT: Kay Steiger)
