It was either call it that or "The Learnin' Thread."

After discussion of high school and college in BobKay's thread, it got me to wondering about the education levels of the board members. All data will be used in my upcoming paper on audiopiles.

Pardon this moment of political correctness: I recognize that education level does not always correspond to intelligence. There is no judging here. I just have a morbid curiosity and am used to asking people this kind of question all day long.

Poll Question: What is the highest level of schooling that you have completed?

NOTES:
• Admittedly, these are answers that fit the U.S. educational system. International users and others that may feel that your answer does not fit neatly into these pigeon holes, then give it your best shot anyway.
• Look here for the definition of GED.
• I would consider a trade certification that took up to two years to complete (e.g. cosmetology, phlebotomy) around the same as an Associate's degree.
• I know our group will skew higher than average, but I'm curious to see how much higher.

I received a GED in the military by just taking the test. Then completed a 9 month, 6 hours a day, computer programming school back in the late 70's. Then I've taken several individual college courses through the years. I've decided to call this an Associates degree.

Looks like a pretty even distribution to me.

I didn't "technically" finish high school, as I had my accident during the school year, but I do have my high school diploma.

I haven't, and will not, pursue any education that I have to pay money for. Ridicule me all you want, but I believe that education should be free in a democratic society.

I've self taught myself via various media on multiple topics. The majority of books that I've read, and own, are used in college and university curriculum.
