s/o College and employment
I was reading the thread about not wanting (or at least not caring) if their kids go to college.
I am wondering if those who feel that way are college grads themselves. I am also curious whether those who feel that way are self-supporting (or their DH is if they SAH). I define self-supporting as -
living as a family unit (apartment or house, just not living off of other family/friends)
not receiving assistance from the government - no WIC, SNAP, EIC, health (unless that is for say a disability - not financially based), etc.
Honestly, I was surprised at the number of people who think higher education in this day and age is not necessary, so I was wondering if that is reflected here.
