If you're a lower middle, working, &/or lower class parent, what advice would you give your children
regarding achievement, education, & success? Would you tell your children that because they're lower middle, working, &/or lower class, they WON'T ever be highly successful educationally & socioeconomically because such is beyond their station in life? What if your children's teachers tell them that because of their lower class, they should lower their goals & take any job, not to have a career?
Select a career path people will pay you decently to do, like the skilled trades, that doesn't require four years of college.
Do not get a degree just to get a degree and hope there is a high paying job there - there isn't, as all the underemployed 20-somethings demonstrate.
