It Was Either This Or Write Another Chapter

I'm a graduate student. I like saying that. Sometimes, I write fanfiction. Sometimes, people like it.

People think feminism means that there’s a group of women somewhere that want to take trousers with pockets away from men and give them to women, and give men trousers with fake pockets, while in reality feminism is the general idea that everyone should have trousers with pockets, because pockets are awesome.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

Anonymous: Since the late 1970s the cost of education has risen by over 1,000% whilst the mean family income has stagnated. As a result, graduating from a higher institution means for the typical college student to be burdened with debt, especially if desiring to pursue a masters or phd, when he/she is just starting their adult lives. Do you think it's always worth it to get an education? It would invariably seem like the answer is yes, but with the current job market, nothing seems guaranteed

politicalprof:

Well, I’d say first of all that “always” is a pretty useless word in human life. Second, I’d say let’s not confound “education” and “higher education.” Thus, yes, it is ALWAYS worth it to get an “education.” It may or may not be worth it to get a higher education, depending on what one wants in life.

As for costs, there is no question that the increased cost of higher ed (to the student, where we’ve shifted costs over the last 30 years) makes it harder to understand why it might be “worth it.” (The reasons for these increased costs are a matter for another post.)

My sense is a lot of people think they have to go to an “elite” school to have a chance in life, and so will pay anything to achieve this end. And, to be fair, if you want to be President, you’re probably right: Harvard and/or Yale seem to have become prerequisites for that career. But for the rest of us, it’s pretty silly.

News flash: YOU CAN LIVE A FINE LIFE AND HAVE A FINE CAREER EVEN IF YOU ATTEND A LESS ELITE, LESS EXPENSIVE COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY. Just pay attention and actually learn how to think and grow and develop … rather than seeking a stamp on a passport of “MAJOR MOFO UNIVERSITY.”

You probably won’t become POTUS. But then again, you probably won’t anyway …
