Do you consider someone who has a high school diploma to be uneducated?
Pretty much. Bachelor's is the standard these days. But it's getting to the point where a masters or higher is required for any worthwhile career.
(Or a bachelor's with an abundance of relevant job experience)
Some of the most educated people I know have no more than a high school diploma. Education isn't just from formal settings, especially today.
Someone with only a high school diploma has received less formal education than someone who continued on to college (or beyond)... thus they are less educated. It's a classification of education level, not a measure of success or intelligence.
My husband only has a high school diploma, but he's one of the smartest people I know when it comes to fixing and building things. He's an appliance repairman. But he can fix vehicles, ATVs, toys, electronics, etc. He's built cabinets, cat trees, bird play stands, baby cribs, etc. He can figure out those little metal puzzles so quickly. He's learned everything on his own.
Honestly I think it depends on the individual, what decade the HS diploma was awarded, where it was earned v the same for the college
Depends really, I mean I have friends who only have a high school deploma and they make more money than I do, and I'm a college tutor, and yea I know that doesn't really prove they are more or less educated, but let's be honest if u were busting you buns in college while someone with just a high school deploma was make more money than you, their the one that seems more educated.
Depends on the person.
Paying $100,000 for a worthless degree is an uneducated thing to do.
Stopping at a high school diploma, is like living on nothing but fast food
You will survive, but it's not smart
Depends on what they want to do. I know some that are making well over $250k/yr
Totally incorrect Brent. There's so much one can do without a degree, and an extra 4 years in the workforce can be huge
I worked part-time while I was in college
That's me! No, I do not consider myself uneducated.
Right! Although I have a bachelors degree, it's driving me nuts how the media is just mass labeling everyone below my education level as being "uneducated".
Ridiculous. I've never been asked in an interview if I have a degree. Emotional intelligence and street smarts are underrated by the media.
