I like your perspective and advice. The thing is, higher education is a profit machine and a sham. Once a person has been looped into the system with grants and “work-study” programs two years in, suddenly, the grants and work-study are cut-off and the choices are (a)drop-out before completing your degree, or (b)take out loans that really only benefit the instituton and continue on the path of acquiring a fancy piece of paper. Choice (a) would have been a wiser one for me, but, I didn’t realize it at the time.
