    Just to share this…

    How Important is a College Education Today? « The Greenroom –

    I dropped out of college after two years… my friends continued on and are stuck with debt out their ears. One of my friends has multiple degrees in physics, math, programming, teaching.. etc.. and he was slinging coffee up until last year.

    I own my own business and am doing just fine. I have learned so much more in the past decade on my own and from the internet than I ever learned in public schools or attending a university.
    This is probably one of the most interesting reads I have ever seen on HOTAIR.

    Reading the comments is really helping me decide in how to raise my kids and what direction I should be steering them for their future.
    Thanks to everyone on here!

    I can’t speak to the other professions, but the legal profession is a nuclear wasteland right now.
    There are top-tier law school graduates working at Starbucks. There are many law school graduates looking to get into ANY other field. Debt of $200,000 is not uncommon.

    There are many folks in that MSU Law grad’s position, wishing they’d gone to bartender school or trucker school. Or anything useful at all.

    For a whole lot of horror stories, start here:

    I think part of the problem with the school system today is they are busy trying to make all students into college students. Rather than looking at the student’s talents & interests, school teachers, counselors and administrators are busy pushing the kids into college and debt.

    Frankly, not every kid should do college at age 18, or ever. They can always go back if/when they develop an interest. What ever happened to offering skilled technical training?

    Too many companies are employing college grads who know lots about business and marketing but nothing about the nuts and bolts of their industry. Workers with technical skills will always find jobs and not have to sit on unemployment lines or flip burgers.

    All parents, advisers, teachers, etc should instill on this…We all have a choice & should not follow the “Herd” mentality.

    You be the judge.
