    I flunked out of junior college with a .66 average after two semesters. Never went back.

    That doesn't explain why professors are generally leftists and socialists, a lot closer to communism than us.

    One thing to note, Michael Dell flunked out of Texas, then went on to establish Dell Computer.

    Education, at the end of the day, is a stamp of approval and accolades from folks who believe in their elitism, nowadays tend to be Leftist. There are people who don't need it. I spent too much time and money at universities.

    Specialty degree in dentistry. Prosthodontics. Eleven year after HS.

    Yup, I'm an uneducated, smelly Walmart shopper, and Hillar/Joe can kiss my ass!

    B.A. Economics. It was nonsense/bs 50 years ago. I thought it was spelled "Ekonomix", till I looked at the diploma. Don't know of appropriate adjective to describe college liberal arts today, but it wouldn't fully convey the waste product it truly is.
    AOC has an Economics degree from Boston University; and she's an imbecile; so there you go. Mine got me into the White House, and hers got her into the halls of Congress - scary stuff!

    Inspiring post.

    I’m too old to take on work towards another degree (I completed a BS in Business Administration in 1968), but university courses would be fun in several fields of interest.

    See, even GT can be enlightening!

    PS: After 40+ years of business experience, I believe work ethic and integrity are the key elements of work/career success. Higher education does open doors that would otherwise be closed because of a requirement for knowledge acquired at the college level.

    Well Colleges & Universities use to be he place to go for a higher education, now most have become indrotrontion center for the left, progressive ideas, and teaching socialistic ideas.

    Hell Black Panter Party Member Angelia Davis was a Full Tenured Proffessor at U.C. San Cruz. Left say I have some person knowledge of he goofy ideas, and brainwashing.

    Became a future Trump Supporter in 1977 when I failed a required CEGEP course ( in Montreal) called "Anarchism & Libertarianism" taught by a French Moroccan Professor. He was really a socialist. / leftist. He failed me because I openly disagreed with him.

    Three master's degrees, two with double concentration/licensure specializations.

    One bachelor's, one minor, and about 100+ additional hours towards other areas without degrees.

    One prior public service career in law enforcement, one current career, plus a small business on the side.

    Reminds me of a time when I was at a job fair for my firm in 08'. It was a long day and the lines never ended for candidates waiting to pitch their resume. At the end of the day I had one guy, the type that likes to stand right in your face type, pushing his resume in my face. He was telling me he had two master degrees and 2 other degrees and so on. My BS meter pinged and my first question was "If you are so smart, why did you stand in this line for 2 hours?" The look in his eyes was priceless, end of discussion...

    I was a Work Program kid in High School. Still, I've got a pretty solid Junior High education.
