How do you gain the knowledge to access your education without any debt? We’re seeing higher and higher tuition hikes, investments in football stadiums and luxury dorms – but less investment in tangible skills that students (us) can take advantage of.
For people that do decide to strike it on their own, it can sometimes be lonely. I know I feel like that sometimes:
“Am I doing the right thing?”
“Maybe I should get a degree in this or that…”
“How will I be able to support myself?”
America is really talking about the way education has to change. Just last weekend over The Time Summit on Higher Education took time to see what changes can be done to reform education (I on the other hand think there just has to be a whole revolution and change made). The top three themes came to be
1. Competition Creates Higher Cost
2. Innovate or Die
3. To Improve Higher Education; build better K-12 schools
These are all things that young people know. But what about actions? What are some tangible answers that they are giving students. During the Presidential debate education was touched on and both parties said “We want to get you jobs.”
Yes sure, but education isn’t preparing us for jobs. Technology is changing the way we interact and do business, there are jobs that didn’t exist a few years ago, and we’re seeing more of a freelance mobile slasher career popping up for us Millennials.
This is why I share classes, schools, and resources that will help you learn skills that you can actually use today. In a world ruled by old thinking, let’s bring in the new and the change. With elections upon us, let’s not wait for change but take advantage of the tools and communities that exist to create our own change.
Hope you’re living a BellaVie!
