I got a chuckle from that article. Not because I don't think it's a good one, but because I was just reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad and it is totally the opposite. Not that he doesn't think going to school is a good idea, but that it's not the way to get ahead. I didn't care for the book though so I never finished it.

College and beyond can pay off if you're in the right field. Some fields don't.

Gary North (garynorth.com) has a program for high school students and parents (I think it costs about $100) that results in an accredited bachelor's degree (4 years) for less than the cost of one year at an ivy league.

It's dangerous to drive by looking in the rear view mirror. The historical differential between college and non-college graduates reflected a relative scarcity of the former, and, as the percentage of people attending college grows, will erode. College will increasingly need to be about real value: actually learning something that matters to somebody, not just getting the piece of paper.

HELP
MY DAUGHTER IS MAKING HER FUTURE PLANS FOR COLLEGE BASED ON HER BOYFRIEND. SHE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND A UNIVERISITY PAID IN FULL, HOWEVER, SHE WANTS TO LIVE WITH HER BOYFRIEND AND GO TO A VOTECH.

I have made $60,000 the last two years and $50,000 several years in a a row before that with a Ged and 2 years trade school with 6 college cedits. So not sure where they are getting thier income facts from. I do work very hard as a HVAC/Sheetmetal mechanic but I'm sure I'm not the only one.
