Investing In A Child's Future

 

When our children get to that age where they have to make decisions about the direction of their life, college is often a factor.  At this point, we have to ask is college worth the time and financial investment?  This has grown to be well beyond a $50,000 question to many families.  Thus, it is worth considering the options.  An immediate progression from high school to college is not the only way to go.  There are steps a child can take that will make it more likely that they end up with the degree they need.  

I am not for or against higher education in general.  Instead, this episode looks at a few ways to get a degree without going the normal and expensive route.  I also ask the question whether a degree even makes sense for your child.  This is not something that can be easily answered so we look at areas to consider rather than a template that gives us the ideal answer.
