I am glad to be in school, and I am aware of the opportunities it brings. I’m 47 yrs old. Being at this stage in my life, I have to admit, that it amazes me how attitudes towards continuing education have changed. The rules are always changing. Fees are always going up. Schools are grasping for ways to raise funds. Its becoming a financial means instead of a right. Taking away the right to a free education is removing the open door to fundamental basic need for one to learn. I think there are ways to keep it open and free, those ways are just being ignored.
