Education doesn't make you stupid, and not everyone wants to grow up to be a worker bee.
The benefits of higher education aren't all about finding a job.

Coders are the least safe.
Do they really think machines can't drag and drop???
They can already deep learn how to correct their own code. It's only a matter of time before they can use the internet as a resource for problem solving and drag drop the solution.

Because sometimes it's not about money, but what the job offers you in those little daily experiences. I wouldn't encourage anyone to get into the tourism industry (hotels and the like) expecting to get rich. But it's a great way to expand your world view if you don't have the desire or ability to go out & explore the world yourself. My income wasn't all that great, but frankly, the reward of interacting with & learning from the foreigners vacationing here on a daily basis was well worth it, and thus to me was something that a fatter bank account can't rival.

Yeah I think it's still worth it only if
1.You are attending a cheap college to begin with
2. You are majoring only in something that gives you specialized skills that are in demand
3. Your college is in an area where you have access to summer internships that are in your field of study
If you want a degree in something you can learn just by beginning to work in that area, don't waste your time and money on college. I work in IT and it is very common for people to have no degree at all!
