1. Do you have children in school? No, not yet. We are "child-less" at the moment.
2. Are YOU currently in school (any level)? No. I'd like to take some classes on my own, though. Maybe ART or CREATIVE WRITING.
3. Did you (or your children) attend a public or private school? All of my family attend public schools, except for my sister. She attended a "private" college.
4. As far as formal education, what level have you completed? I attended a Junior college.
5. Do you, or did you have loans out for your (or your children's) education? No. Me and my parents paid for my college education. My sister was awarded a full-tuition scholarship. (My "counselor" didn't help me apply for any scholarships. Academically, I was tied for 4th in my graduating class of 68.)
6. What are your thoughts on the cost of tuition for colleges and universities? I know colleges need to charge money for education, because a college degree isn't a "priority" for most states. The prices charged are to high, in my opinion. My family may disagree with me here, but, Georgia and Florida both have lotteries. Any child in those states who wants a college education, can get one. This is because the money made from the lottery funds education. I really think that is amazing. (In all fairness, however, lotteries CAN have negative consequences, too.)
