THis is a question that Im not sure I really have an answer for yet. I was adding up the cost it would have been for my daughter to attend university a few years back. It was between $15000-$20,000 a year. Then I read a story about a prisoner being paroled who had taken a university degree in prison. Everyone was so proud of him..and that is great but....does that mean my daughter should have committed a crime to get a free education?...What do you think?
