A new report from the state’s Council on Postsecondary Education says college credentials are still a good value for Kentuckians.

The report released this week also says state allocations for public higher education more than make up for their cost.

The report comes from data gathered through following the Kentucky high school class of 2010 for eight years, from their entry into college or the workforce.

A news release from the council states by 2018, bachelor's degree graduates were making $12,000 dollars more annually than high school graduates after paying an average of $55,418 dollars for the degree.
