This is a continuation of a talk we had with friends at the dinner table. The question was, do you think college is needed to do your job? I won’t give our answers here, you’ll have to listen to find out! I’ll give you some hints though.
We go through our personal backgrounds with Charles having a bachelors in Electrical Engineering and Bethany with her Masters in Art and Teaching. With a large difference in our degrees we naturally have differing opinions on the topic. We go deeper still and talk about the cost of student loans and the effect it can have on college graduates.
Mentioning student loans, we both had different financing for college and different levels of financial aid. With such a heavy cost to education these days it’s even more important to look at what your future might look like and potential income ability. This is hard enough for grown adults to figure out let alone students getting ready to graduate high school.
Even with the potential hurdles of going to college in this day and age, we are both proponents of lifelong learning. Learning and school might look different in the near future but get a fresh take from two people who recently graduated in the last 2-3 years.
Now in iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play and everywhere else podcasts are found.

I really enjoyed this episode! I am an educator so when hearing you question whether or not one needs a degree to do his/her work, I was interested. I also appreciated how you two came down on both sides–Charles said he didn’t necessarily need a degree and Bethany said “definitely!”
