Chalk Talk: College or Trade School?
For many students, it's a given that they will attend a university. Whether it's a state college or an Ivy League institution, parents are putting more pressure these days on their children to earn a college degree. But is that always the best route for a successful career? If a student is more inclined to wrench on cars than study books, earning a certification at an accredited trade school might be a far better career path than spending the time and money of earning a degree at a four year university. Also, depending on family financial situations, it might be better to enter the workforce right out of high school and gain those extra years of real-world experience that employers are always looking for.
