Episode 0: pre-reamble
Here is a re-post of the inaugural episode of See Jack Learn, the podcast about college planning and surviving the gap between high school and higher education. In Episode 0: the pre-ramble, you will learn about why I started this podcast and how it differentiates from anything else that relates to college planning. Being a former head of a college access center in Ohio, I give my philosophy about
defining college readiness and how you can be prepared socially, financially and academically for life after high school.
I spout statistics about college attendance and retention, and why women will soon rule the world. I also talk about a house bill in Oregon proposes that students get to attend college for free and then "Pay it Forward".
Finally, I define the concepts that will be commonly referred to future podcasts, and what the terms Social, Academic, and Financial mean.
