In comparison to some white students, many minorities see college degrees as very beneficial. Most white students disagree.
A College Board/National Journal Next America poll surveyed different ages, races and political beliefs, and it was noticeable that whites do not share the same attitudes as minorities when it comes to whether or not having a degree will help one succeed in life.
