by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours?? – Q & A Answers Part One
Editor’s note: Sorry Zsu, but there are some subjects/professions that cannot be learned by reading or apprenticeship. Remember that twin to twin transfusion thing you were suffering from during your pregnancy with Boaz? The doctor that treated her did not learn how from a book, he went to post grad med school. Which is why there is higher learning. This is more about the Anderson family not wanting their kids exposed to people who think and live differently than they do.
Would you let any of your children (daughters included) go to college?
By the time our children are college-aged, they will no longer be minors, so this is not a question of us “allowing” them to go to college – that would be their decision. However, it is our hope and goal to teach them that college is overrated and worthless, and that working hard and consistently will advance a career much faster than getting a degree. Our daughters will hopefully have learned that no college or career comes close to the blessing and privilege of being a wife and mother. It’s like asking if I’m worried they will grow up and eat at McDonald’s: I suppose it is possible, but when you are used to grass-fed steaks, that pink slime just doesn’t hold any appeal. They CAN go to college if they want to, but why would they?
Please note that I am NOT against learning. However, going to college and learning are not one and the same. Anything that is taught at college, one can learn on their own through reading or apprenticeship. Not like going to college is a brain transplant – someone just stands in a classroom telling you things that are available elsewhere to learn on your own.Of course, some professions require college degrees. Should anyone want to pursue a career in one of them, it would be wise to utilize a private college, with no “diversity” training, and without incurring any student debt.
