Answer for question 4196.

If money wasn't an issue, would you go back to school to study something? If so, what would it be and why?
Actually, as someone who has actually done this at a decent community college, school is completely inaccessible for someone who just wants to go back and study something for the educational value. The entire registration process tries to funnel you into a major, you're forced to take tests and set up meetings with counselors to determine your 'career goals', and the entire process takes an unnecessary amount of time, energy, and paperwork. The sad thing about this is that I *already* have a successful career, and these educators and administrators are making the presumption that the only reason to spend time in a classroom is to find a better job; not just because students might actually be interested in a subject. Honestly I think the system, and students in general, have been duped by the government, which has been duped by lenders, into thinking everyone needs a college degree.
