How Important I think Education is
Damn, I really should have read every day on this blog challenge. This has to be the dumbest topic.
IMPORTANT? Education is damn important! Don’t get me wrong not everyone wants, or should go to college. The problem arises when your economy requires an education just to get ahead. When my father was in college many of his high school classmates could leave high school and get a decent paying job doing most anything. Unfortunately most of those jobs are gone and never to return.
So the next obvious question is, do the number of students entering college reflect this fact? Absolutely. Its probably one of the reasons why college is so expensive. Universities know students will take out crushing debt to pay for college because its still the only ticket in town to the middle class. I really don’t know how to solve the student loan crisis. I’m just a fan of college in general.
Anyway I’d love to hear your thoughts on lowering the cost of higher education.
