But in today’s society a high school diploma can get you a job as good as a waitress at a restaurant, not a Oncology Nurse at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

According to Margaret Soltan’s; Better Living Through Conciousness, “All brains eventually fade, but we shouldn’t, before our time, collude in that fading. We should cultivate the highest forms of consciousness that we can, while we can (Soltan). To me, I believe that if I’m not giving something my all from the beginning then there is no point in my doing it.

Also in one of W.J Reeves articles, he says, “that 70% of the workers in the coming decades will not need a four-year college degree, but, rather, an associate degree from a community college or some type of technical certificate (Reeves).
