Surprised by the lack of educated parents...

I cannot believe how many parents are going to school nowadays.

Did you not think an education was important before?

Are you going to school just so you can get the aid money to pay on your rent?

Wouldn't it have been more responsible to get an education prior to having kids?

Isn't an educated parent a better parent?

You do realize people go back sometimes after they graduate and Isn't it awesome that parents are at least trying to get an education?

There are so many different circumstances to just be cut and dried like that.

I went back to school because I was ready.  Right out of high school I wasn't.  No big deal as I could afford to and I worked full time as well.  Graduated Summa Cum Laude.

I would rather them be working to provide for their children than going to school...

There are many reasons why people choose to go back to school later. Nothing wrong with it.

Congrats on your achievement!  Thats great, I just think its best to educate ourselves and make ourselves the most likely to succeed before we have kids not after.

I had my son at 18. I think I'm a very good parent but yes, I think being finished with school would have made me an even better parent.
