Is this a real question?! Obviously, I believe that early education is critical in life. Unfortunately, I think that America's educational system is a failing one. Starting in elementary school, the level of education is on a constant down slope. Fantastic teachers are inadequately paid or terminated to make way for completely uninterested teachers who are, inevitably, uninspiring. Three months into my senior year of high school I didn't think I could handle another day, and by the time I graduated all of my favorite teachers were gone. Thankfully I made it through, but I'd already known that I wasn't incredibly interested in going to college. Deciding between a career in interior design and opening my own store, I didn't think it was necessary. I absolutely believe that college is perfect for some and AWFUL for others.
I, personally, have no regrets about not going to school. Even when my grandma asks if I'm taking classes every time we talk. (On a side note, now I'm actually interested in going to school. I'd love to take some math classes because I've always been so fascinated with math and actually quite good at it.) Anyway, I think people put so so much value on a college education. I went from high school to working in a board shop/boutique. I now, five years later, am the manager and help with buying and have my Etsy shop and studio! I have gotten an incredible amount of experience in running my own shop, without massive college loans. I'm on my way to a fantastic future with a high school diploma :)
