What a relief. Just about when I decide I’m a lonely voice in the wilderness, an article at Fee.com says the same things I’ve been saying for years. The author, Brittany Hunter, urges this next generation to not follow in the footsteps of the current generations overwhelmed by college debt.
An education is valuable. Statistics show that college-educated workers make more than workers without a college education. But what use is making more money if student loan payments are significantly more than the income difference between those who are college graduates and those who are not?
As Hunter said, “Some have even been forced to live with their parents.” She also said that the realities of the forgiveness program are not only unfeasible but also immoral, “forcing people who didn’t go to college to pay for those who did.”
I really liked that Hunter offered alternatives, like apprenticeships, community colleges, and choosing majors that will provide a job. Your college degree is not designed to train you to say, “Would you like fries with that burger?”
Before I end, I would like to encourage you to use my way to four degrees with no debt for any of them. Take your time, work, and let your employer pay. Many employers will gladly pay for your degree while you work for them.
Thanks for reading, and please pass this on to anyone you know who could use it. And may God bless your efforts to achieve financial freedom as it leads to spiritual freedom.
