Here are four reasons why college isn't for everyone.
1.Everyone does not need a degree for their desired career.
I’m sure at some point in your life you have needed a plumber, an electrician, or groceries from a store. All of these jobs do not require a degree but are necessary for the functioning of our communities. If everyone went to college, who would fill these jobs?
2. Some students have little motivation after high school
Everyone knows that senioritis is a real thing, am I right? Sometimes it is not going to be efficient for someone straight out of high school to jump into college. Not everyone knows what they want to do with their life straight out of high school and that is OKAY. We shouldn’t be forced to choose a career and stick with it at such a young age.
3. Money issues
This one is pretty obvious. College is expensive. Let’s just put that out there. Some people just can afford It and that’s okay too. No one should feel forced into something they cannot afford.4. Time spent in college can be put to better use
College kids seem to have a lot of free time. Some kids feel that it is a waste of time and resources. Some people may have better things to do. Either way, you shouldn’t be forced into an expensive decision.
All in all, college isn’t a one size fit all kind of deal. We need the workers that use technical degrees. No one in high school should feel pressured to go to college because ‘that’s what everyone does’. Be yourself and do what makes you happy. You are going to have your whole life to live. Make the best of it.
