OT - College education
Yay or Nay - do you think a college education is necessary?
I say Nay. I'm the youngest of five. My siblings all have degrees. I do not. One sibling got a 4-year degree at a $$$ school and became a housewife. Another spent 14 years in college for a prestigious position. I actually make more money.
One of my brothers pushed his son to go to college. My nephew struggled for 3 years, then told his parents "no more". Nephew went from job to job, learning skills. He finally saved up enough money to go to trucking school and have been driving for over 5 years now. He and his wife just bought their first house.
I don't understand the push for people to attend college. Not everyone is cut out for it and not every job requires a degree. Trades are suffering because so many are chasing the Degree Dream.
