“College Bound” Could Mean “All Tied Up”

“College Bound” Could Mean “All Tied Up”

Not everyone needs to go to college to be successful or happy. When I was in school about a third of the students were no better educated, no more interesting, four years later. They could have used that time to much better advantage. I’m betting today that number is closer to 50%, and it’s often a five- or six-year matriculation.

And the idea that you make great contacts in school for later in life is fallacious. The really successful people have no intent on entertaining a business relationship with the slacker who was sitting next to them in freshman English trying to copy their test answers. They want to network with people like themselves.

Why incur any debt at all for a wrong turn?
