Not a fan.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Let's be honest. Art and philosophy majors don't make junk. You do something like that not to make money but because it is a passion. Most people with that degree won't have a job in that field. It's like they will spend four years chasing rainbows and drinking coffee, and then spend 25 years paying for it. I would be more impressed if they were doing it for accounting or a business major. A degree people can build on to build wealth.

Ps My best friend is a history major with minor in philosophy. It used to be the other way around until she realized just how little she could do with it. Heck, even the History is almost worthless unless she is going to teach. I added this to show that I have a fairly intimate knowledge of that degree and not just ranting on. Lol

It's misleading to say that it's tuition free and pay it forward.  There is a cost, and they're taking it from you after graduation.  It's mandatory, so it's not a good will gesture.  I hate loans.  I hate owing things.  I hate having to relinquish a portion of my paycheck.  And what if you're kicking tail?  You pay, not what you got out of the education, but still a percentage of your pay.  I know they're looking at this as a way to get out of crushing student debt, but it's still debt.  And for 24 long years.  I can't even imagine.

 oh yea i heard about that on the news here a couple weeks ago, seems like that money they will take out of the students paycheck when it happens will get used for some other thing than what they say, seems like money has a way of disappearing here!
