College or Bust

Written by: Stacy Leone on February 14, 2018

This is what we’re instilling in our future high school graduates.  If they don’t go to college they will not amount to anything.  And this could not be further from the truth…

College definitely is the right choice for many, but it is not the best choice for everyone – and that’s not a bad thing.  There are quite a few avenues that people can take in High School and after – and that is the Vocational Programs. 

More than ever we are seeing a shortage of the Trades here in this country and especially here on the Eastern Shore!  These jobs are NEEDED!  More and more opportunities are opening up in these fields and they are no longer considered the “low level” jobs and career paths that so many believed them to be because they don’t require a college degree.   

Check out this great article from the “Chicago Sun Times” by David McGrath. I think this article touches on the overall atmosphere created by the pressure that is put on high school graduates to go to college.  And I’d have to agree with Mr. McGrath, it’s completely unnecessary.
