If you ask me, college education is very important for us ordinary people. We don’t have money to invest in a business. We have no extraordinary skill that we can use as a tool to get hired by big companies for a post with a promise of promotion. We don’t have backers in high positions who can guarantee our easy entry into a good company.
So a college diploma is very important. We can say that there are persons in history and even in today’s generation who became successful even with very little education. That’s their fate! Plus they have done something extraordinary that made them successful. We cannot assume to reach the same in life. Almost always, we are left depending our success in life with our college diploma.
Can you blame a kid who doesn’t have a clear shot at college if he’s depressed and doesn’t have the urge to go out and do something?
