Is college necessary?


I'm working on my second master's degree, so this question is a bit odd coming from me. However, I keep reading articles that talk about people being dragged down by college debt, how other people weren't able to find a job and so on and so forth. I also read a lot about how this country needs more and more people with technical skills, and people with degrees often can't fill those jobs because they don't have those skills. I'm fortunate to be in the group of people who can use his degree, but I don't plan on pushing my children into a college education. Thoughts?
