New skills and knowledge can spark a lifetime of change. Every day, EDC’s programs in education, health, and economic development deliver life-changing opportunities to those who need them most. A bias against educated people? I? I have a BS in Chemistry (not one of the fuzzy subjects that have no real answers). I possess a 4 year trade school diploma, and when I passed my journeyman electrician’s exam 14 years ago (an exam over half of the people fail the first time they try) it was with the highest score ever recorded in the state, and one that stands to this day.
At the same time may people have argued that higher education is too focused on jobs and has neglected the need for teaching broader aspects of education. Many have pushed for broadening medical courses into areas that teach doctors to relate better with their patients and to have business skills.

Neither did I. What I am presenting here is an intelligent premise. You have studied hard and made sacrifices to obtain a college education and you are going with an undereducated person-that is totally illogical. When one obtains an education, he/she would( I hope-maybe I am from a different planet) want a relationship with a person of similar educational background. This would be the intelligent and logical thing to do! Why I am explaining this-this should be innate commonsense! Oh dear me!
I love you Wilderness! You are so darn smart. People need to understand what is important in life. My man chose not to go back to school and he is one of the smartest people I know. At no time do I ever feel that I am missing something based on our educational differences. I did feel like I was missing something dating educated men!
