The system should allow people to change between working and learning periods more freely. And then the problem of forced education will be reduced when the student realized certain need of learning. Well, this is not an easy problem, and rebuttals are welcome.

This would require rather extensive socialism (which is what Canada apparently does), which has its own set of problems.

Well it depends on the person. My mother was living better on the government's money as a student than she had been as a worker, but only because she was a single mom and they support that and gave her lots of money.

I can't say that I have any more money now than I did as a student... the only difference now is that I have these loans to pay back... I don't go back to school right now because I don't want more debt... not because I don't want the life of a student.

I intend to get a graduate degree and write-think "starving-artist-in-the-garret," and you'll have a good picture of a beginning writer. I will not be in a position to pay off fifty thousand dollars of college loans.

But what are you going to do Keesa? I mean how are you going to pay for it all, without taking out a loan? Or are you working part time right now and saving up?
