Im sort of thinking Ill buy my kids a tire franchise, or an apartment building or something like that. College degree seems to be worth less and less. We are doing the PA prepaid plan though.

The bigger question is what to urge them to study for as the economy changes. Definitely no humanities/theater, etc, at least not on my dime. I already teach them about grownups who waitress/work at Starbucks etc who majored in womens studies or the like....and who are serving us food-and I never even went to college.

I met a guy once who spent 4 years in school learning how to manually set typeface for printing. The year he graduated computing took over his job. He had a good sense of humor about it, though.
