Creative Thinking-One Problem at a Time

This is just something to think about--don't have the full picture yet, but looking for answers to problems one at a time.

The high cost of a college degree makes me glad to be as old as I am. I would hate to be thinking of helping 4 kids through college these days. But one is working on a plan which helps high school students do the "double enrollment" meaning taking some college courses at local Community Colleges. I'm not even sure of the nomenclature, but hope you know what I'm talking about.

Any time high school kids can get a running start on college means less money spent on a four year degree with savings up to 25% if they can put in a full year. That is an amount not to be ignored.

So it wouldn't be a waste of time if you have children or grandchildren in high school to encourage them to take a few college courses now. It can mean a large pay off later.

Just a little food for thought...

God bless......

Everything you said is true. We also need to do something effective about the high dropout rate in high schools.
