Dare it be said?

Will Richardson's post is one to think about.

I have been thinking whether a college degree is really necessary these days. Many claim it is, but it seems to me as it is just another treadmill. See his post above for interesting thoughts on this. Since humankind has made quite the mess in this world, should it not be an opportunity to really rethink this? Really, if college is not for everyone, why is a high school experience that prepares you for that necessary? If you look at college drop-out rates and years to completion, one must argue that should not be a path for everyone. Every career is going to require training beyond high school, but that training need not be through college. What if there was an opportunity to pursue your passion and learn earlier?
