High-paying jobs are available for students who choose trade school or vocational or technical education instead of bachelor’s degree programs.
My son is 15 and will be starting his junior year of high school in the fall. The talk of going to college is buzzing all around while no other options are even suggested half as much. There seems to be such a stigma around not going off to school to earn a bachelor’s degree, and I don’t think this is fair to our kids.
My son probably won't go to college, at least not right away.
While I am still going to take him to visit schools to make sure it's not what he wants to do straight after graduation, it might not change his mind about what he wants to do. For now, he feels like he wants to be a plumber like his father, and we both think that’s great.
