Debt as an indicator of intelligence is implied whenever someone makes a statement that 17, 18, and 19 year olds should consider their college choices and predict the likelihood of a return on their investments (ROI) carefully. It is ludicrous to expect young adults to make such choices skillfully, especially because trained economists and the possessors of graduate degrees in business administration can’t. If you don’t believe me, take your business degree knowledge and define “intellectual capital”. Yes, you might make the argument that a college education is a commodity, but you can’t resolve the challenges of appraising its value. Just like appraisers can’t put a real price tag on what employees know.

Bruce Feiler has a plan for you.

“Sometimes, rather than compare students to previous groups, we compare them to ourselves. Maybe you were a great student. Plenty of teachers were; we loved school so much we became teachers. But a lot of students in your peer group were not like you; because you were a kid, you didn’t know about all the problems that were being handled while you were out at recess or sitting on the carpet for story time. You didn’t know about all the homework that didn’t get turned in or the other kids’ low quiz scores. And if you were the kind of kid who turned work in on time and never talked back, if your handwriting was neat and your clothes completely free of rips or questionable slogans, you’re in a perfect position to be incredibly judgmental of every student who isn’t just like you were. And that’s a whole heck of a lot of kids.So if that’s the case, instead of thinking about how you were as a student, try widening that lens a bit and remember some of the other kids you went to school with. Not everyone was an excellent student. Not everyone behaved. And now that you’re the one in charge, they are all yours.”
