Career Step Publishes New Infographic on Factors Keeping Adults from Higher Education

Career Step has published a new back-to-school infographic with statistics on the factors keeping adults from returning to school despite the well-publicized benefits of higher education.

Provo, UT, September 18, 2013 --( Career Step, an online school offering career-focused education, has published a new infographic with statistics on the factors keeping adults from returning to school despite the well-publicized benefits of higher education. The infographic includes data from a survey conducted by Career Step in August 2013.

“Career Step’s mission is to help individuals improve their lives through education, and we conducted this survey to better understand the challenges facing many adults while returning to school,” said Career Step Vice President of Enrollments and Marketing Ryan Ewer. “Our new infographic shares the most common survey responses as well as the reasons additional education is worth the investment. Education is one of the best ways to improve your life, and Career Step is dedicated to helping our students quickly gain the real-world skills they need to change for the better.”

The new Back-to-School infographic shares statistics from Career Step’s August 2013 survey on the benefits of additional education as well as the obstacles standing in the way of returning to school. Though 58 percent of adults would like to pursue additional education, too little time and too little money were the most cited reasons for not returning to school.

In addition to survey information, the new Career Step infographic also includes details on why investing in education is worthwhile, such as higher earning potential, increased job security and improved career opportunities. With the flexibility and affordability of online learning programs, these benefits are now available to many adults who would not have been able to pursue additional education in the past because of cost and scheduling concerns.
