Every time someone says it’s worth it to go to university because “an education is the one thing no one can take from you” it drives me up a wall.
You know how to take someone’s education from them? It’s easy.
Hit them in the head.
Your education is one of the easiest things to lose.
The debt is a lot harder to get rid of.
Every day I take care of the shell of a person who used to have a PhD.
He doesn’t know how he got here.
He doesn’t know how to tie his shoes.
That debt is still there, waiting to be paid.
You can lose an education, believe me.
