Inferencing skills learned sophomore year whilst reading “Of Mice and Men” serve me correctly here, it looks like our country sucks at helping students obtain higher education without a side of crippling debt. Old news, I know. But it’s interesting to bring to the forefront again that other countries are really just doing it better. Even Trinity College in Dublin and Oxford in England don’t charge more than 20k a year from the looks of my Googling. Oxford. Ever heard of it? My school cost 61k. For one year. One. How is this really still happening? At least it’s over for us, right? Oh, wait. Your kids are going to want to go to college, too. So, start saving for that three years ago.
