Is the Cost of College Worth it?

This paper is my high school senior research paper. In this paper, my subtopics will be the history of the cost of college education and why it has risen, the benefits and return on investments for going to college, other possible high paying alternative jobs that don’t necessarily require a college education, and how society has pressured students to go to college and say it’s their only option to succeed. There need to be two academic journal sources and five internet sources in my paper and I would like you to include footnotes and a works cited. Direct quotes and paraphrasing needs to be utilized as well. I’m confident you can make my paper original.
