?Many schools now have student counselors who encourage one to pursue higher education after high school, to pursue a career with a future in this system of things. Do not be influenced by them. Do not let them ?brainwash? you with the Devil's propaganda...? - WT 3/15/61 p171
?It would hardly be consistent for such a youth, of his own choice, to pursue extensive secular studies beyond what is required by the law and by his parents.? WT 9/1/75 p 543
I know this is what you're looking for.....
***w69 3/15 p. 171 What Influences Decisions in Your Life? ***
12The influence and spirit of this world is to get ahead, to make a name for oneself. Many schools now have student counselors who encourage one to pursue higher education after high school, to pursue a career with a future in this system of things. Do not be influenced by them. Do not let them "brainwash" you with the Devil?s propaganda to get ahead, to make something of yourself in this world. This world has very little time left! Any "future" this world offers is no future! Wisely, then, let God?s Word influence you in selecting a course that will result in your protection and blessing. Make pioneer service, the full-time ministry, with the possibility of Bethel or missionary service your goal. This is a life that offers an everlasting future!

***g89 5/8 p. 14 What Career Should I Choose? ***
many Christian youths have decided against a university education. Many have found that the training offered in congregations of Jehovah?s Witnesses?the weekly Theocratic Ministry School in particular?has given them a real edge in finding employment.
Ask them who's the mediator between them and Jehovah. They'll say it's Jesus and point out that through the lip service they give to him ina prayer...then show them this quote.
***w79 4/1 p. 31 Questions from Readers ***
Moses was the "mediator" of the Law covenant made between God and the nation of Israel. (Gal. 3:19, 20) Christ, though, is the "mediator of a new covenant" between Jehovah and spiritual Israel, the "Israel of God" that will serve as kings and priests in heaven with Jesus. (Heb. 8:6; 9:15; 12:24; Gal. 6:16) At a time when God was selecting those to be taken into that new covenant, the apostle Paul wrote that Christ was the "one mediator between God and men." (1 Tim. 2:5) Reasonably Paul was here using the word "mediator" in the same way he did the other five times, which occurred before the writing of 1 Timothy 2:5, referring to those then being taken into the new covenant for which Christ is "mediator." So in this strict Biblical sense Jesus is the "mediator" only for anointed Christians.
Oh, sorry, not interested, I thought this was some kinky sexy topic......
