Re: s/o College and employment

I don't disagree that a college degree can open opportunities. I just disagree with the idea that a degree is the ONLY way to open opportunities. I also think it's a bit overly optimistic to assume that a degree is going avoid the challenges of financially struggling and "moving up."

Neither my mom nor sister have college degrees and they own their own successful cake business.

Ultimately, I do WANT my kids to have college degrees, and I do expect that they will end up getting them. I just am not going to be upset if they don't get one...IF they have plans and goals. I just think that a goal, a plan and ambition are much more important.
