This week a student was complaining about the paradox between education and financial challenges. I explained to this student that one may attend school to gain the skills necessary to carry out a particular function but in the end the student has to decide the course of his/her future. This may be difficult because it may appear that teachers have all of the answers. We honestly want to see our students succeed but part of the growth of the student is the ability to grasp learning that will be useful in their immediate sphere of influence. Please do not press delete on your goals. Strive to see your personal vision reflected in the daily tasks of completing your assignments.
