Mothers who seek to rejoin the workforce or start new careers have many options to earn a degree or vocational training. There are also several subsidy programs, some operated by government agencies that can help mothers to finance their education.
As a mother who has not able to finish a degree, the probability of having a well paid job to sustain the needs of your family is very thin compared to mothers who have one. In our society education is a determining factor in how far we can go, the more education you have, will lead to greater success.

And being a mother with all the accompanying responsibilities to you, is not an easy task without the possibility of returning to school, but if you think about the long-term benefits that this can serve you, it is worth making some sacrifices.
