|How dual-enrollment High School students perceive my husband in college. (Minus the death part)|
We just had to get books for my husband's course load, and for three books...yes, just three, it cost us almost $500. INSANITY! Two of the courses aren't even in a classroom, they are online. Why can't the books just be online for viewing then as well? I could buy 5 Kindles for the price of those books where I could just download the reading on to them. One Kindle for the car, one Kindle for by the pool, one Kindle for at work, one Kindle on the couch, and with my fifth Kindle I'll go ahead and donate it because I already have four other Kindles. It makes NO sense!!
Then when you go to pay for the books they were generally shocked that we were paying with a debit card and not with student loan money. It should not be the norm that someone has to go so insanely into debt just to receive an education. Education should be a right, not a privilege.
