Afterwords, a parent pointed out what the world is really becoming...a college degree doesn't get you anywhere anymore. I just barely saw this commercial on the television...
Unfortunately college does not give you the security and money that this commercial implies. Brian just got promoted--YAY!! I am excited for him and he really enjoys his new job. And he is very excited about the pay raise and bonuses that come with this pay raise. However, the weird thing to me is that Brian works part-time at a credit union while getting his college degree, but if he worked full time he would make more than me. It makes it really tempting to not finish that degree for him--but he does want to get into his field. For me, I wonder sometimes why I worked hard at my degree.
Now don't get me wrong, I love my job and I especially love teaching. And I knew that teaching doesn't pay that much from the beginning (so even if I switch schools it won't make a difference)...but am I a little bit strange to think that a teacher with a college degree should make more than a loan officer without one?
So what's my bottom line---something should probably change--but how?
