This source is an article about the reasons for pursuing a higher education. Besides the obvious to become more educated, there are a whole array of possible reasons for pursuing a higher education- based on circumstances, financial reasons, having an inquisitive mind, following societies’ norms in trends, or pursuing a specific career path that requires a higher education. All of those reasons are valid, this article not only lists off reasons to pursue a higher education but isn’t pushing for one or the other. This article explains that higher education isn’t for everyone and that it’s okay to NOT to take a traditional route to college. I agree, college isn’t for everyone, and just because that’s the norm doesn’t mean it’s the right path for you.
Below I provided the link to the article and a few links to trade schools which is a more nontraditional route these days. You never know what you will find your passion in 🙂
