Theresa Grof: College blues

Theresa with her husband, Kevin; sons, Henry and Freddy; and daughter, Katie
Desk attendant, 34, Dayton, Ohio

I am facing my college loans and my low-wage job and the fact that I will not be able to send my own daughter to college.

All I want is full-time work that actually pays the bills. My family hasn't been on a vacation in three years. We don't go to the movies or even rent movies. I went to college and did the right thing and here I am in my 30s contemplating reenlisting in the military for money.

Something needs to be done in the country. My daughter said to me the other day, "Why bother going to college Mom? You have a great degree, from a great college and it means nothing. I think I might move out of the country."
