I'll respond to 2 first. Yeah, I 100% agree with you. I do like talking to you, but I should cut down on the tagging stuff. If I wanna talk to you. Do you know what would be the best way to do so? As for 1. I think higher ed is really important if you wanna go into engineering, law, medicine, teaching, etc. However, I have a problem with it. No, it's not the prices of it (in the US). It's really the fear mongering stuff like "Oh, you need it for a good job" and people pressuring you to go. The pressure to go to uni might be acceptable if you want to go into engineering, medicine, law, teaching, or other careers that require uni. However, I don't think my passion requires uni. I think experience matters more then a degree. Look, maybe there are countries where you need university for a good job. I'm not sure what you think of the statements about how you "need uni for good job". Do you think people need uni for a good job or no? EDIT: I meant that I think experience counts more then a degree for my "passion".
