Needing Some Advice

March 13th, 2009 at 03:49 am

Student loans? Where do I start?

Wife has been laid off (4th time in a little over 2 years). She wants to go back to school to be a "cosmotologist" didn't they used to be called stylist?

I am all for her going to school for it, (even suggested it a few years ago when her string began) but I have absolutely no clue how to even begin to compare student loans to grants to begging for money on a curbside.

The way I see it, if she were to get licensed, she will be able to do something she would be more then suited for and enjoy doing. Plus "layoffs" wouldn't be as looming or as dreaded as her current production jobs.

Anyway, workforce developemnt will no longer fund this type of education,

" we only provide funding for education in careers that will place workers in jobs that pay 13$ or more an hour"

Huh? Around here those type of jobs are few and far between.

I have done all the work-ups how we can survive and even make headway with only my income, so I'm not panicing about our bills, yet.

I have been surfing the web and accumulating all kinds of info, but most of it is about as clear as mud ie: legelease. We have spoke to a couple of finance people in the schools, but they are about as helpful as a wart if your not willing to enroll "right now".

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance
