Another good point. We are so focused on the 'degree' that we miss the point of education to 'step' people up. I am in banking and we used to have the American Bankers Association that would give us courses after work. They were great, but in the late 90's they disappeared. It used to be that you had to take those courses to move up in the bank but now its just about who you know.
I do have a good way to help 'weed-out' those who would not complete school. Make the money a 'loan' and it is forgiven when you graduate. That way if you don't finish you then have to pay it back. It also will make those on the 'edge' of going/not going have to think before going.
I think AK uses your suggestion. One better, if you get your degree and work in the state for five years the loan is paid off.
That's all good ideas.
I'm still wanting those CEU's for people who just want to know more, or want new tools. Lets put an agreement on them as well.
If we finish the course and use it in this state for two years, the debt if forgiven. If not, you pay the debt back with interest on the length of the loan.
No free Education for prisoners! None ever!
PS: I was with NCR for 35 years. I went to Proof school. They gave us a Comic book to learn banking. It was so interesting I read the thing late into the night. Comics are as good for some folks as real books eh?
