Is not go to university!

Just read an article that said that if you take the money you would spend on a four year liberal arts degree at a private university (say 30,000 a year, including tuition, books, room and board), and invested it when the child is 18,19,20 and 21, by retirement they would have $5,000,000. That's more than most liberal arts gradutes make over their lifetimes.

That made me think a lot. I want my daughter to go to university for a variety of reasons. If she ever wants to become a missionary, for instance, many mission boards require a B.A. But it does give you pause, doesn't it?

Discuss among yourselves!

That's an interesting though. My hubby and I both just have one year of Bible school, where the tuition, room & board, and books were less than $7000. It is also where we met. He has never had trouble finding a decent paying job, but he is also a smart guy, willing to learn, and grew up on a farm. Makes a difference.

How about online classes? That, and the background thought to me is that how many really fantastic world renown missionaries were actually turned down by missions and struck out on their own, trusting that if God sent them, He'd make a way?
I'm not so hot on what passes for higher education, as it turns out.

My Honeyhusband also never went to college, but he's never stopped learning and is now the bigwig running an entire power plant. He's so educated (self educated) nobody can come close to keeping up with him. One of the bigger draws to a good job is a good attitude and a willingness to learn.
