Of those who responded to the educational portion of the poll, something like 96% have gone on in some form of higher education. That's even higher than I expected.

I have a BS in Social Work. I *almost* went on to a Master's program right afterward but I was burn out at that point. I also knew that when we had kids I would be staying home with them so it seemed crazy to go into $20k of debt for a degree I was only planning on using for a few years. Also, the closest Masters program for my degree would have meant lots of driving as it was 2.5 hrs away and after finishing my BS by commuting 1.5 hrs I was a bit tired of that. I wish that I had my degree for the sake of having it but I don't regret not getting it. I like my current *job* and don't plan to ever return to paid work again, barring unforeseen circumstances. I do enjoy learning though and hope as I am homeschooling I can explore some things that I have either forgot or never knew.

I thought DCF would be closer to the U.S. Census figures. For instance, according to info I saw from Census 2000, 27.4 percent of American citizens have a bachelor's degree or higher. It's more than double that on DCF.


Quote:
U.S. Census Bureau
QT-P20. Educational Attainment by Sex: 2000
Data Set: Census 2000 Summary File 3 (SF 3) - Sample Data
Geographic Area: United States

9th to 12th grade, no diploma
12.1

High school graduate (incl. equivalency)
28.6

Some college credit, less than 1 year
7.1

1 or more years of college, no degree
14.0

Associate degree
6.3

Bachelor's degree
15.5

Master's degree
5.9

Professional degree
2.0

Doctorate degree
1.0


Percent high school graduate or higher
80.4

Percent bachelor's degree or higher
24.4


Note: the table broke it down into male and female, the figures here are both sexes averaged together

I have two associate degrees, one AA in music ed, one ADN in nursing. I'm currently going back to school to finish my BSN. Not sure if I'll go farther than that or not, may get my MSN or ARNP in a few years.

Hence we are not a random sample. Or representative of the total population.

I know. That's why I created the poll--to compare a select group (DCF) against the total population. :fyi:

He's not poster here but my DH at the age of 52 finally got his BS degree in Business Administration. He already had some college credits. It took him two years to finish.

He says its now my turn to finish. :shock: I'm considering it and am looking into financial aid specific to Native Americans.

That would be true....if this was 1980 but it is 2010 (almost 2011) and now something like 80% of the population owns (or at least uses) a computer and the majority of those are online...free WiFi is everywhere, 40% of the population owns a smartphone with internet access, and even basic consumer electronics such as Blu Ray Players and video game consoles now connect to the Internet

Being on a computer makes us decidedly average and even (gulp) mainstream

Wow. Ok. My family yet again differs from many of you. My family did the Florida pre-paid college thing for me. There was no stipulations on where I could go, except for the program limited it to state schools. So FSU, UF, community colleges, etc. The out of state thing came up, and they wished me well but they couldn't afford it so I'd be on my own for that.

I would have started working on getting a scholarship to wherever I wanted to go if they had done the whole "you're gonna go where we want you to go because it's our money." thing. At the end of the day, the degree will shape my life, not theirs. They knew that, and I know it.

But oh well. If it works for you guys, more power to you.


So, despite your comments your parents had a major say in where you went. Besides, Florida colleges??? Is that really equivalent to colleges in say North Carolina? Not from my experience.
