Some may call it a sign of tough economic times, but Inside Higher Education is calling it a “dilemma”. . . of the “20-something” kind. The article’s author, Tim Henderson, presents his answer to the question attempted by so many professors, professionals and parents before him: “Why are 20-somethings taking so long to grow up?” He points to the fact that young people are moving back in with their parents, taking unpaid internships, or bouncing from job to job seemingly without direction in larger numbers than ever before. His conclusions provide much fodder for discussion.
