There are too many people in college. There. I said it. A bold statement, but true. I guess I am writing this out of aggravation, frustration and good ole irritation.
There is one thing they do know: minimum wage doesn’t pay for $100k in student loans. And while all these kids come out of college armed with these degrees, the fact is there may be some fields where we already have too many people working in a specific field. More people just means less wages to go around. The pie doesn’t get bigger, the pieces just get smaller.
So we may very well find ourselves approaching a fork in the road: do we continue this relentless push for more bachelors and masters degrees for our kids or do we redefine what it means to be educated?
Maybe it’s time we started…
