In many ways women are much closer to equal income and in some college programs there are more women that men. All in all, women have been making strides over the years. But this isn't the case for all women. While rich and middle-class women have been climbing all sorts of ladders, less fortunate women have the same amount of equality as back in the 1970s.
Dale Stephens, a 19-year-old self-proclaimed "education expert" who's been featured on CNN, Tech Crunch and the New York Times (just to name a few), begs to question the significance of a degree in today's entrepreneurial economy. Along with his colleagues Erich Sparks and David Mattingly, Stephens has developed Uncollege, a program that promises a full college experience that requires no tuition, textbooks, classes or dorm rooms.
I was brought up believing that the world consisted of two groups: people with degrees and people without degrees. I went through life thinking that the people with degrees ran the big businesses and drove fancy cars, and that the people without degrees worked at McDonald's (unless they got lucky and invented Apple computers or Google instead).

I think many (myself included) kind of just wind up at college somehow with little thought in advance as to why we’re there in the first place. There’s elementary school, middle school, high school... college is just kind of the next step in the education process. An expectation for some; a requirement for others. The reason why college is so paramount to parents is because they equate four-year degrees with success and large figure salaries to come in the future.
We're all feeling the effects of the recession; we've gotten pretty good at cutting back on expenditures, and super creative reusing the resources we already have. Despite the economic downturn, though, most of us have not forgone the chance at a college degree, even with the extremely high price tag. But wouldn't it be nice to have about $10,000 or so of that cost shaved off?
