Degrees = Jobs
Sounds pretty obvious, but it's true.
Educational attainment is a huge reason why some cities are thriving and some are not. Philadelphia is one such city that is thriving, but based on the amount of great schools we have, the city could be doing a little better.
According to reports, PA ranks 3rd in the US (behind only CA and NY) for having the most colleges/universities among all states. More specifically, the Greater Philadelphia region has over 40 four-year colleges/universities and that's not including two-year, technical, and graduate institutions. Needless to say, finding a suitable place to get educated is an easy task in Philly.
