There has been a trend in education in the U.S. over the last couple of decades to push everyone to go to college. Not only is this impractical (how do you pay for it and there is not enough room for everyone), it is a disservice to those who could have better success and earn a higher income by going into a trade or taking another avenue. College is not for everyone. Believing that it is actually can ruin more lives than help. How many people have wasted time and money trying to make it in college when it would have been easier for them to learn a trade, save a ton of money, and be eventually earning a great income? The push to make everyone college bound is a travesty that needs to end.
