Re: “Why Idaho kids don't go to college

I understand what Kandis Johnston is saying about someone with an advanced degree and a job which requires no higher education being a rather poor example if the purpose is to inspire kids. However, I think the real goal ought to be to let students know that, while a degree promises nothing in and of itself, without it, many doors will shut automatically. The degree usually provides a person with some choices in life. I held a rather lowly job just before I retired; it certainly did not require a degree. That was my choice at that time in my life. It suited me fine. For most of my adult life I used my degree to work and travel all over the world. My own goal had been simply to have a life that was interesting to me. It was and I never regretted the hard road I traveled to get that degree. It seems to me that there is a depressing short-sightedness when money is the one and only measure of accomplishment, in this case a college degree. Obtaining a college degree has paid off in a hundred ways for me, far more than just a way to make money.
