On the Dec. 4, 2016 edition of Work with Marty Nemko: A switch-sides-in-the-middle debate between my wife Barbara Nemko and me on the question, "Should you go back to school?"  We'll no doubt end up exploring for whom it is and isn't a wise choice, as well as how to make the most of a back-to-school stint.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.
