  • I would advise the kids not to go to college. I worked my way up from bench technician to aerospace engineer by self study and ambition.

    None of my kids listened. But I have 2 in STEM (one was employed in industry before he graduated – the other has an “A” record – 3rd year chemical engineering). One graduated with honors in Russian literature from UChicago and is working at the American Embassy in Moscow. And my 4th is an artist.

    I still believe self education is the best education.
