Should kids go to college? Everyone and there mom has a degree, even some with a masters. Why spend thousands of dollars just to go into debt, when your chances of being competitive are over. It's like your parents said "its who you know, not what you know".

People tend to overlook the reason why they should enter an education institution in the first place. I believe that people should go to college to receive education in order to have skills or the knowledge that they can put to use when they choose to specialise in their field of trade. Receiving education improves the quality of labour. Many developing and developed countries depend not only on a labour intensive workforce but also the think tanks that will sustain the industry. Moreover, it is an extra skill set in case labours are replaced by machineries (in which you could be the one spearheading the project).

It costs money unfortunately but that is because of supply and demand (I learned that from going to college, see.).

As he demand for education increases, so does the tuition fees. The demand for education stems from the motive to increase the individual's chance against their competitors in the workplace by being more qualified.

"It's who you know, not what you know". Indeed but networking in colleges will increase the likelihood of a quality partnership. Plus, why would anyone want to be your partner if you don't know what you're talking about?
