Web sites worth the click

For those who regret spending tens of thousands of dollars on tuition for their college degree, the National Center for Education Statistics offers some reassuring facts. In 1999, male and female college graduates earned 58 percent and 92 percent more, respectively, than males or females with only a high school diploma. A great source of student-related information, the NCES Web site is laden with reports on education in the U.S. and abroad. The Electronic Catalog helps locate publications (most in PDF format), and the Fast Facts section affords a quick glance at professors' salaries, the most popular majors, the number of private schools in the U.S. and much more.
