A few thoughts:

I have several degrees (BA, Master, a Certificate, and working on a 2nd Master)

I do think that there is value in higher education, but I wouldn't think less of someone for not having one. For me, had I not gone to college, I would definitely not have found my way into a career that I love, and having the education was a key part of it.

I would not trust a for-profit university with a single dime, and if I were hiring people I would be skeptical of degrees from those places (mostly because - why wouldn't you go to a public university or a private NFP university?). Distance degrees, however, are fine. Most major public universities have them, and I think its a great way to get an education if you aren't in a city with a public university.
