World Tonight: Valerie
Life or University?
I'm quite happy studying life. It's certainly cheaper than any structured learning. The problem as i see it, is that in this counrty & i suspect many others as well. Is that the system is set up to more or less force you into college & university as a teenager. I'm not saying that nobody studies as a "mature" student, but they are in a small minority. We are channeled into studying early & then going into a career. We need a complete rethink, imho. Perversely, the current financial problems may well allow some people to make career changes they would never have had the chance to make otherwise.
Great topic... Well, first of all, it's never too late; I think you should go to university now and study something that truly interests you just because you want to, not because it will pay off in a career. And, truly, at any age, that's the only reason to study anything. My own educational journey had a few starts and stops. I took a couple of years of before going to college the first time, then when I did it was to study film & broadcasting - a degree I never finished. I went a few years later again (at 27) to get a degree in Politics, then went on to get a Masters in Public Policy, which is pretty much related to the career I subsequently had in the nonprofit sector. But more important, it was an opportunity to learn how to learn; to explore different ways of looking at the world, analyze options, and arrive at my own, better-informed, conclusions about the way things are, or should be. Your points about someone in their late teens or early 20s having no idea who they'll be later is so true. The ultimate educational system would require four years of work, then a year of study, then four years of work, then a year of study, and so on throughout one's life. I think we'd all be better informed and happier in a situation like that.
