If you are going to go back to school you need to make it worth your while. It is pointless to return to school only to get C’s. You should be working hard so that your sacrifice pays off. If you are an adult in school, you have most likely given up a job to attend school, or you are spending less time with your children. Well, that sacrifice will be all for nothing if you don’t work hard and learn all that you can. The point of going back to school once you are an adult is to be able to find a better paying job, or a job you can do until you are old. It isn’t to merely get a diploma and continue on your same life trajectory.
