So this chick teaches college says an Associates is not a Degree. Many making comments that an Associates is worthless. While I dig that one cannot get the same pay wage as one with a Bachelors or Masters so forth, depending on the school you get your degree really rates the value of your education.
Then you got my I refuse to speak Spanish post LOL (yes troll post I needed my fix from being gone awhile) where people lecturing that education and learning more is always better.
So, really, I have learned to realize that if the school is a quality school whether you start with an Associates, or a Trade School or brave enough to just go for your Bachelors, or finish off and acheive your Masters, I think most people failing to realize, that many with an Associates later will get their Bachelors, not all but some do.
I will say however, from my own experience working on my Programming Associates, I do not think Associates are sufficient for young people, and would recommend they consider doing a four year program (getting those general ed in) because they do have value to it.
I do think Associates are great for us older folks, people that havent had the opportunity to finish school or need to start school but still moms and children at home.
I think it is sad that so many look down on these certifications and associates because, really, we are only putting down people bettering themselves and continuing to learn.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.
