Did you mention age? And or don't think that an education makes
After the schools and colleges finish holding their hands half still

Depends on your view of money. If she is happy with her life and
career with low income as opposed to being a shrink with big bucks and
sad life, she made the right choice.
My guess is that at some point she will trade helping people for a
better life of her own if she gets tired of carrying that student
Take your choice, but just don't complain about student loan debt ten
years after you graduate with a useless degree.
Education is a wonderful thing. The more the better. You do,
however, have to be responsible in your choices. Going to college is
good for many, but it is not always the best path. Some go because
they would rather bee a student than worker, others because parents
think they must go to keep up their status, etc.
That Master's Degree in 8th century Lithuanian art won't allow you to
earn enough to pay the appliance repair guy making triple your wage.
A little truth to that, you simply don't go for a vocation that is not
necessary. My son is in a relative secure and growing industry, thank
you Enron. He is a financial statement auditor of public companies.
I never ever understood, even during the 90's, how any one graduating
from college thought that they earned the right to a good paying job
just because they had a college diploma.
My son had his first good paying job offered to him 5 months before he
got his bachelors degree, 20 months before getting his masters and he
even passed all 4 of his CPA exams between the masters degree and going
to work for that company.
There was no marketing at all unless demonstrating that you can work and
go to school at the same time is considered marketing yourself.
Welcome to the Occupy Movement. Except now, they are covered in
colorful tattoos, faces look like tackle boxes, dread-locked hair, guys
are wearing kilts, can't take the slightest admonish without some sort
of reward for motivation..... and they wonder why no one will hire them.
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
Well to be truthful, the first time I heard the comment of earning the
right to a good job it came from my BIL, he is pushing 70 and never
really had a decent paying job. This "right to a good job thinking" is
not a new way of thinking.
Yes, actually it is. There's a direct correlation between the
education level of society in general and the quality of that society.
What some are advocating here is the return to the Roman coliseum and
the spectacle it provided. The all encompassing scythe like attitude
of "Letting them sink or swim" is something that hopefully would
change as society continues. It's just too broad an approach.
Virtually all of my students are finding decent jobs. I'm not sure what
you mean by "colleges getting leaner". What is it you would like to see
less of? I think your views are biased by your experience where and when
you went to school, a time and place which has surely changed.
Maybe you should distinguish between colleges and universities?
My neighbor's son was a principal (now an admin) when the school
system started having money troubles. He unilaterally closed the
school sports division, offering to maintain it if the athletes'
parents covered the costs. The State immediately jumped in and told
him it was unlawful to stop the sports program and to refer to his
documentation from the state. Sure enough, it was there. They school
would just have to dump a few -teachers- to be able to afford it, but
The country is being run by damned speaking weasels (attorneys, for
those of you in Rio Linda) and Unions. It's going to shit. <sigh>
In the depth of winter, I finally learned
that within me there lay an invincible summer.
