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?

    Yea, that is part of the issue of why we had the meltdown in the financial industry.  Most people know nothing about money.  I am in the industry and it was very tough to understand what and why we had what we did.  The root of everything was GREED.  Back in the late 90's when they repealed the Glass Steagall act the idea was 'oh the principals of the company's would NEVER take on so much risk as to lose the company'. That was what was suppose to stop this from happening.  Turns out basic greed took over and the principals didn't care about the company only about how much they personally could make.

    Money won is twice as good as money earned!

      Well said Bashly. Risking it all is certainly stupid in a shooting war as well as in a Financial war.

      Greed is Good! Its called Greed by the losers in the war on winning.

      If you have money invested in a business, it's good that you watch what the people in control of your money are doing with it.
      That's a long disertation, but its ourselves that let George do the watching, that cost us our money.

      I better shut up now. I'll turn this into a Political forum in a hurry! :)
