I actually have a reason I don't care if my son goes to college

Our nations heroes don't need a degree. Soldiers protect out country. No degree needed to join. Police officers protect our streets. College degree is not required. Firefighters protect our homes among other things. No degree needed.

i think these are all noble professions and would be proud if my son chose any of these

Do you agree or disagree?

I'm almost positive that police officers have to go to college.

Disagree. Degrees can help anywhere and military ff police etc are all pathetically paid.

Sad really.

A degree on the military gets you better pay and a higher rank....

 My sons is military. He is also a student. He sees how valuable a degree is. The military doesn't always prepare you for civilian jobs after you get out. I know many fire fighters and cops that get degrees. It helps them move through the ranks.

Some do, not all. None in my little town need to.

Degree should still be necessary.

In my state, police officers require a degree. Also, decent paying military jobs require one, and unless he is going to be a lifer, when he gets out he will need one
