It is usually expected that young adults automatically attend college the fall after completing high school. But this brings up an important question: Is college the only option for young adults after high school?
As we discuss students’ futures with them, let’s ask ourselves, is college the main or only option we should be presenting? As parents and educators, we all truly desire to help our students and children succeed. This “success” may not be in the traditional sense. We need to consider and evaluate what is actually best for each child, and that will likely look different for each individual.
