Education vs. Degree
“Education” is a way to understanding Western culture and languages, and the history, culture, and languages of other cultures. There are many colleges that offer a good “education” in those areas of knowledge, if that is what you seek.
If you are a student approaching the age of admission to college, or a parent of a student who will be seeking admission to college, you should assess which of two courses you should take: earning a degree or gaining an education.
