Have you ever wondered what spending time in the classroom is actually worth to you? By working in the classroom actually pays in the long run. Go one step further. If your school is associated with a local college, the local school district is actually paying you to study, to give you a pay rise. Sounds like a win win to me. For some of you, college is free or the very least heavily subsidized. If you go to college and get even the minimum requirement, you are further up the starting pay scale when you take a job. Just imagine if you really embraced college and achieved a College Degree. What would it be worth to you and how much more could you afford?
