    With two kids currently in college (thankfully, the one at the private, Jesuit-affiliated school got some good scholarships!) I am definitely going to take a look at the story on college costs and college grad salaries. My oldest daughter is majoring in English and acting. Don’t laugh. Education is never waste, I tell her. And I believe it, too! She’ll figure it out and she’ll make a living somehow. She’ll graduate this year. I’m trying to instill in all my kids a sense of money — not only how to have enough to live, but how to multiply it, and manage their debt! Thee are so many approaches, which can be confusing. I do like the faith-based approach. Jessica Psalidas
    has written “Financial Purity, which helps you build financial strength by following the most valuable plans and scriptures in the Bible. Finances are linked to everything in your life 0– you don’t want that “everything” to be negative. We’ll see how it goes.

    I meant to say, above, “education is never wasted.” Forgot the “do.”
