• $100,000 Not To Go To College? What Do You Think??

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment

    Have you seen this story about the PayPal co-founder who is offering a couple dozen high school grads $100,000 to skip college and develop innovations for two years. He is very publicly saying that a college education isn’t necessary. Read about it here.

    I, too, have wondered whether the outrageous amount of money parents sink into college is paying off in an economy where grads are struggling to find work. But I still don’t think I’m brave enough to tell my kids not to go. Studies still show that you have a better chance of finding employment the more education you have.

    I guess these kids could do this for a few years and then go to school. But would they? And if tides change and their innovations no longer support them, would they be employable?

    What do you think?
