More people need to think like you. I don't believe it can be though, which is a whole nother rabbit hole. This facade that a degree is necessary to live a happy successful life. The two wealthiest guys I know, one is a plumber the other is an HVAC guy, but Ohhhh, look at my paper and my Human Studies degree?!?!My wife and I have been discussing this Florida pre paid college fund, as we are trying to start a family. Do you know if it can be applied to tech school? My whole family is in education and I'm proud to have a degree but I have a trade that doesn't require one and pays me much more than most college grads. Personally, I believe trade school is more valuable for income and job security.
We, as a country, need to get back to respecting people that can provide a service or trade, god knows there's no one you're happier to see than the AC guy in August when your compressor blows.
