“And I also feel very strongly about education. I mean, you educate people, and you give them the keys to freedom. It doesn’t matter where they came from or what their background is, they write their own ticket.”  Dr. Ben Carson, United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

$$ Every hour you are in class participating you are being PAID with Education Dollars = Real Dollars once you get out in the work world.  If you do not put in much effort during class (not learning much) your Ed Dollars per hour go down fast. But if you work hard in class (learn a lot) your Ed Dollars per hour GO WAY UP.  Everyone's Pay in class will be different depending on effort given which Reflects how it works in the work world where people make different $ per hour.  Do not let the Ed Dollars slip through your fingers, grab as much as you possibly can as the smarter you are the more Real Money you will make.$$
