    College education is oversold as a key to better life.
    Many people who do not belong in college find themselves trapped in a dead-end college  program that will lead them to debt-ridden life. And why? because one cannot achieve the American dream without this piece of paper. Go on dreaming.

    Too many people get a meaningless degrees just to find themselves working at jobs that have nothing to do with their field of study and hate every minute of it.

    If what you want to be a cheese artisan - go and become a cheese artisan. Want to become a carpenter - go and become a carpenter.

    It reminds me of the joke about the pipe that burst in the middle of the night in the home of a very famous brain surgeon.

     The plumber arrived and after 10 minutes of tinkering fixed the problem and gave the bill to the surgeon.

    After one look the surgeon exclaimed "I am a brain surgeon and even I do not charge that much for a 10 minutes job".

    "Well", answered the plumber, "When I was a brain surgeon I didn't charge as much either".
