Is college required?
- I know someone that has more hours than I do, is no where near a degree and is $67k in student loan debt....right, $ 67,000.00 in debt, no degree and at least another year (and $13k) to go. The degree she will get will NEVER pay her enough to pay her student loans.
- Students graduating with social science BA degrees and 30k in debt, with little or no marketable skills.
- Students with non-technical degrees "need" advanced degrees to obtain jobs capable of paying back the debt.
And given some of the crap that passes as academic studies today, what real value does a degree hold? I mean, "Application of Temper Paints in Medieval Cloths"?
I live in a small city full of cab drivers and store clerks with DEGREES!
