I didn't get an opportunity to watch the video yet. However, whether or not higher education is a scam, is for others to decide. I only went to one
year of college due to lack of money and have been working the past years in computers, starting first with servers, then to network OS like Winblows
and Netware and Banyan. Now I am in networks and work for a very large company -- all with no college degree. I have paid for training and learned
on my own to get multiple certifications to have the required "check marks" on my resume, again, all without the degree or the large costs associated
I happened to catch a few episodes of This Old House on PBS I believe recently and was very happy to see a program they have setup to help younger
people and teens get into trades work like electrical, HVAC, renovation, etc. I wish I had followed something like this when I was younger as I would
prefer to be outdoors and working with my hands. I believe this is a great idea, and there is plenty of good money to be made in these professions.
The link below is what I could find on this after a quick search. I really like the idea.
Again, I haven't watched the video, but the subject of the original post caught my eye, and I think there are many other options than just going to
college and getting loaded up with debt.
