dear ms b-thats a lot of dough

what do you call someone who like your gma
who teaches kids at the school
thats what you call them
even though
they went to college at different places like
baylor smu ut texas am tarleton state harvard etc
you still call them
what do you call a nurse that went to each of these
when you need them when you are sick
thats right
you call them
what do you call a doctor who went to harvard yale usc
u of a ut texas am
thats right
you call them
so recently i saw in a magazine all these schools
what it would cost to really attend there
if there was no financial aid

as i looked at the numbers
i thought ms b
is a degree in elementary ed like at baylor or smu
really worth $250,000+
where as the same degree at tarleton would be
at ut
at am

actually ms b i would say that none of them
are really worth that much money
but especially at those quarter of a million places

so i was thinking about all this ms b
why does it cost so much to go to college
it all seems like a racket to me
like a country club to me

why cant they have a costco university
a walmart university
a generic university

then there are kiddos that go to school
if things go wrong in their life
cant ever get out of debt with a bankruptcy
the only debt in the us
thats that way
as far as i know

a trillion dollars of college school loan debt

something seems so wrong with this system

add to that the fact that not all kids
dont have to go to college
so many kids get degrees that are really
sort of useless
add to the the fact that so many kids
dont get a good liberal arts education
one that teaches you how to think

a problem we have here in the us
just look at all those political candidates
those who vote for them
they cant think for themselves
they just watch fox news or msnbc
believe what they see
and hear
they dont know how
to think for themselves

so in summary
we have gone awry here somewhere
our system of college education is really broken bad

ms b
i hope that the generation just below you
figures out how to fix all this
it may cost you a million dollars to go to college

can you imagine having all 4 kids to go to some of these
a million bucks right now for college

i say
well honey
you need to be a carpenter plumber or something cheaper
to train for
you may make more money anyway

just ask your gma
