But if it's a feel-good talking point for the State of the Union Address with no tie to reality...
I'm actually all for free university but I would like to see less people getting degrees. Culturally in Great Britain right now there seems to be an expectation that everyone should get a degree which devalues it to a certain extent. As WWD said I'd like to see greater emphasis put on trades and skilled labour so that for people who aren't naturally academic there is a positive and respected alternative.
I am a tad confused are you saying it's ok for your mom to do it but not others to do it??In my mother's work, I see her other nurses putting acronym after acronym following their names. MSN, BSN, yada yada yada. It annoys me to no end. My mother does it because she is proud of her education (I do not attempt to dissuade her off of this. It is a good thing to be proud of). But, in my view. If you must make an introduction by putting so many letters after your name, then you're doing something wrong.
