ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – Is a degree in  higher education worth the price?  Results from a recent study say yes.  Economists looked at data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  They found that those with an associate’s or bachelor’s degree earn more money over their lifetime than those who skip college.
