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 was actually in the process of signing up for music classes at a local college (the campus two of my sons will be attending in the fall)...and I got pregnant with my daughter. So, I never went back for that. I have a BSEE but always loved playing music. Ten years later, I am not sure I'd want  to go back to college.

I never finished my BA. I used to kick myself for it before the economy took a dive and I realized I was also more highly paid than the MBA in our office, because of my abilities and experience.

I have a BA in religion and I am working on another one in Criminology.  If I could be a lifetime student I would!

I have a degree in early childhood education. I also am 9 credits shy of a degree in Spanish, but something clicked in my brain and I didn't want to study that anymore. :) 

DH has a master's degree in art. He works as a user-interface designer, from home, for a company in another state. I don't work. I taught preK and K for a few years before I had children. I sometimes miss it but mostly, homeschooling fill that 'void' in my life.

I would go back to school to get a degree that would make it possible for me to earn more money, if the need arose. Like if DH was unable to work or died, I would probably get a medical degree, or at the very least, a master's degree so I could earn more $. With my degree, I could find lots of jobs, but not jobs that would pay enough to support me and my children. Even though it's unfair and I don't feel degrees show a person's worth or intelligence, it's the main why we are evaluated on how much we can be paid for doing our work. 

I wouldn't go back to school just for the heck of it, without planning to work afterwards. To me, that would be a waste of resources. I think all women should have college degrees, though. (all men too of course - but definitely all women - even if they only plan to be a "stay at home mom" in adulthood - it's an excellent insurance policy!).
