"I did work at a private school for two years in the late 90's. Pay was better and I had no administrative burden like public school would have. I may be exiting the field as well, since even at the community college level, it is getting…"

"There are private schools.  It may be hard to find a posting, or maybe the pay's more a problem, but they don't do common core, their administration is radically different, &c."

"Most people don't end up working in a career related to their degree. University teaches you other skills that you should be able to use in your later life. I think when trying to switch careers having a degree is always better than not having…"

"Fair enough.  Like I said earlier, you have to evaluate everything as a whole. You can't just declare that you did it right and she did it wrong or vice versa. Not to mention that you don't really get an answer by measuring yourself…"

Good Morning Gentlemen,I am a college dropout. I graduated high school, but did just barely well enough to to participate in extra-curricular activities.

I spent 10+ years working in retail & customer service, while getting married and having 2 kids along the way. I have also educated my self on many things, which I probably could've done had I not been such a goon regarding school. I'm now an Office…See More

James Sullivan replied to Dave Finnie's discussion Free ebook on Amazon today (may be of interest)
"Agreed. I try not to be a snob about it, and I have a few ebooks I've read just on my iphone, but I find I even have a hard time getting through a digital copy. I am trying to get used to it, though, if only for the savings."

Hi James liked some of your posts so far.   Hope you are doing well and your family too.   I have a 5 month old grand son and  a 5 year old grand daughter.  I am sure you are a great dad.   I am a wonderful grandpa.  You have a great day.
