Education creates employment, or the other way round?

Just got my proposal for Second Year Policy Analysis being reviewed and, well, criticized by my supervisor. I plan to do some analysis regarding Female Labor Force Participation. One thing he mentioned: education is not endowment. It is a choice variable. It's not "education that creates employment". Instead, it is the (chance of getting) employment that creates the incentive to go for education.

On a different case, but pretty similar, this guy just decided to quit Harvard because the marginal return of another year at Cambridge, MA 02138 is very small (even negative?).

    Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and club music lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about club music lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite club music lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!
