What is the current half-life of a college education?

In truth, the subject line says it all, but I'll elaborate because I feel verbose as usual. "What is the current half-life of a college education?"

I Googled the question but my results were less than specular. I found the half-life of an "engineering" degree in the 1940's estimated to be 14 years. I remember 6 years from the 1970's, and one undated item (search results of a subscription service) gave 6 months currently, current to when I have no idea. Another result indicated 20% of a subject's time (One day per work week) should be devoted to continuing education, just to keep current. Heck, I had class mates who earned their degree putting in less time than that. I do know that an unsuccessful Google search is a really bad sign for me, but then, I'm retired.
