There seem to be many people asking the question, "Should I go back to school?" Returning to school is an investment in your future. What is it worth to you? That is the question one should ask when considering returning to school.
What has returning to school cost me? I quit my full time job in June to go to school full time. However, the job I have now has even greater potential than the job I left. My degree will also add to my job's potential. I have had to juggle family schedules and be deliberate about my family relationships. Going back to school has made me appreciate my family even more.
My degree means my future - greater earning potential, doing something I really like, sharing my story as an encouragement to others. When considering the return to school, family is a huge thing to consider, even more than the debt of student loans. I would quit school tomorrow if any of my children needed me. They all know that.
There are many reasons to return to school and many different things to consider when making the decision to school or not to school. Ask yourself what your education is worth to you, to your family. Good luck in making the decision. Stay tuned . . .
