    Depends on the degree you go to get some are useless and others are useful. If you have a talent go with that if it can make you money, but dont go by force cause you'll end up dropping out anyway with nothing to show for it

    Theres not such thing as free benefits the only way for the goberment to give you free staff is by first taking from other americans in the form of taxes you end up paying it with less jobs and less bills in your pocket

    Anyone can make a good living without a college degree. My story is...I did 10 years in the Navy, gained experience, got out after 10 years, and did full-time cybersecurity. I didn't like the idea of going to college since I was already collecting a decent paycheck, but the VA pays veterans to go to school for 36 months and pays tuition. So why not? Now I'm working part-time cybersecurity, getting paid by the VA to go to school for free, and going to college. I don't think college degrees are overrated, but they definitely are not the end-all be-all for success like some people think.

    Is there a word for education that doesn't mean school/college? Like maybe intelligent? Or experienced, knowledgeable, savvy, or something?
    Or maybe education is the right word for "learning," but when people use it they really mean a "formal education"? I'm think the 2nd I said ^

    For the statement, education is the key to success, can we elaborate on it more. If it is gaining education on the passion or job you want then it is a key factor, but what about useless courses you don’t need to have even though colleges force you to take them.For example if I am pursuing a career in journalism or acting that means I don’t need education in math like geometry. I may be interpreting the statement incorrectly but in my eyes it seems to me that education is a key to success depending on if what you are studying is helping you with what you want to do in life.

    It really depends if college is right for you. Some degrees like psych, computer science, nurse, engineering a whole lot of technical stuff then yeah. it's better to get through a college so you can speed through the learning process. Really, the whole concept of (Go to school -> go to college -> get a degree) isn't a guarantee of getting your dream job. I wouldn't be surprised if someone working in McDonald's has a masters of anything. There's problems with money, a whole lot of debt, people say it's a great investment but to some people like me. it isn't. especially if you're not even guarantee to find the job you're looking for. It strikes up a whole lot of uncertainty and that turns into an equal amount of fear.

    To me success means to be doing what you love and being able to pay your bills! I don’t think education is necessary for success always. What you want to do in life and be successful in just doesn’t require an education sometimes.

    I think instead of telling people oh become a blah blah blah because of money. It should be viewed as how can you help society improve?
    I was homeschooled and this is how my parents introduced jobs. I’ve worked at sooo many diverse places and I’m so grateful for that experience. To the world am I worthy because of my income? I don’t care but I can offer medical assistance down to cleaning toilets and I’m happy 😊 oh and help stock market advice and bag groceries.

  • Tip Aly

    I don’t think college would become useless if everyone were to attend and graduated. But I do believe it becomes another step in the education system that we should provide at a basic/entry level. Once you want to go into a specialized area, then you pay for it. My issue is that education on all levels does not prepare us for transitioning into adult life or work life. We are flung into this big pile of knowledge, soak up what sticks, and then walk away with all of it trying to apply it to an6 given situation. 🤷‍♀️

    I don't think a degree is all that necessary (depends what it is e.g a doctor). I didn't drop out of college I failed too many exams to continue on, but now people I went to college with have a degree and a job that's low paying and nothing to do with their degree and I started small in a company but worked my way up into a position I would have got if I had continued on in college. I would value a hard work ethic over a degree anyway.

    America has the most capitalist line of thought I have ever seen.
    Thinking college is just for getting a job is so sad. College gives you knowledge, and yeah, of course you can read and learn on your own but college lets you know people who you can debate with, talk and form a critical thinking. College is much more than just a step before job.

    College is only worth it when you choose a major that makes money. A perfect example is nursing. In California the average annual income is around 70000 dollars and you can start working with just a associate's degree. The total cost of the program (for a community college) including books and equipment is a little over 6000 dollars.

    Kristena Sessoms 21 day ago

    College was a good experience for me took me forever to finish but I'm glad I got to go. In all honesty I wanted to stop going because it got hard but I made it. My only thing is that I haven't found a job to pay all the debt, and I'm trying to still figure out what am I going to do with my life. Is college worth it? That's a good question that I do not know the answer to. I'm happy I got to go, but having a degree is not going to make people hire you at all. Some people make it seem like the key to success is to get that degree but its really up to you. A lot of employers want all these years of experience and it kinda sucks. I know that if someone hires me that I can do the job and that I would be able to manage, but they are worried about whether or not you have enough experience. I thought that's what training was for, but anyways love this topic.
