Cathy’s Corner — What does a degree get you nowadays?

Posted: Thursday, September 27, 2012 12:00 pm

Just recently, I mentioned that one of the biggest mistakes I ever made was that I did not get a college education. I encouraged everyone to go to college, if at all possible.

However, college is not for everyone. A commentary in the Sept. 16 issue of the Houston Chronicle, written by Patricia Kilday Hart, and a letter in the “Dear Abby” column in the Sept. 17 issue of The Banner-Press have made me reconsider my stance on the importance of a college degree. Just a bit, anyway.
