I was just wondering what everyone else highest level of education is.

Would you ever consider going back to school to either continue or further your own education?

I would like to go back and finish getting my degree. I was going for a business degree. I have close to two years finished. Life kinda came up so now it's on hold for a while. I know my husband would love to see me go back to school.

my folks feel that my degree was a waste of money since I stay at home etc.....but I know that I have grown from the experience...and since I didn't marry and have kids until I was 28.....I had some years where the degree was useful with finding employment etc.

I have 2 BA degrees. Enjoyed the vast majority of my classes and I'd do it again if I had the choice. I occasionally toss around the idea of a Master's, but my life is way too full for that right now. I love learning, either on my own or in class.

You remind me of my husband. He doesn't like school and teachers. He skip school just to work when he was younger. He was self taught. Now he's the President of the company. He likes real life experiences. Now, we are homeschooling our son but we teach him the value of hard work.

 Mine is very different. My Mom withdrew me from school when I was 15y/o & in the 9Th grade, she never enrolled me into another school (I was pregnant with my oldest at the time). without knowing it my parents unschooled me (it was only when I started learning about homeschooling & unschooling that this realization came to me). I have always loved to learn, I was the kid that questioned everything & always wanted more information & was never satisfied with the answers given. So it wasn't a big surprise that after leaving school was when I really started to want to read classic books & know history & understand science. I am self taught in everything I have learned in the last 20 1/2 years. I have no desire to ever sit in a classroom to be taught by another person those things that I can pursue & learn myself.

 Knowing the value of hard work & being willing to start at the bottom gets you farther in life than most people realize it will.
