Joan Labin: Citibank is recycling an old cool idea: Paying for Education

Joan Labin

As I neared the end of college in Wisconsin, I intended to attend law school but my father was completely against it. Despite the excellent legal boards, I had another problem called “being a woman”, which is also hard to overcome. Add to that at the end of my junior year, my father also insisted that I get a teaching certificate or he wouldn’t pay for my final year at all. As a hobby, I loved reading the catalog of university courses. As a result, I mastered their ambiguous grammar and found a way to graduate after 3.5 years, then entered the School of Education as a postgraduate special student in the Ford Foundation Fellowship Program, which sent me to teach in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
