In the United States, as across the world, college is depicted to children from the early years of elementary learning as the only path to success. I believe that this is an intentional way to misguide children into a system in which they are one in many, instead of one of many. Intelligence should not be determined by a piece of paper that says bachelors degree, or one that says high school diploma. Job qualification should not be based upon which university you attended or what your grades were like in high school, it should be based upon your individual skills and work aptitude. There are ways to educate yourself other than shelling out thousands of dollars per semester at an overrated book club.

Yes, education is the only path. If you're stupid then you won't get no where in life unless someone who is not stupid takes care of you or teaches you. If that person doesn't teach you anything then when that person is dead, you are going to be screwed. You can't gain skills if you don't get educated.

College is more of a overrated high school with students being over 18.

If you think college is an "overrated book club" then you obviously have never been to college nor researched it at all.
