Getting an education costs money, but it can really pay off too.
Tenants commit to an apartment, typically by signing a lease for a one-year term. You are obligated to continuing to pay rent until the lease is up when either you or your landlord may renew it, cancel it, or allow it to go to month-to-month terms.
If you are like most homeowners, keeping your household functional is almost always at the top of your to-do list and your first priority. This can include making sure that the appliances that you use daily are in best working condition.
Getting a job in education does not necessarily mean you are a teacher or administrator. In fact, out of the millions of Americans employed in the field of education less than half of them are actually teachers or principals (or professors and deans, in the field of higher education).
