Should All Students Go to College

Was this helpful?

This question continues to be asked but too often it is somebody trying to find some excuse to dumb down curriculum or create pathways for students to graduate from high school without the rigor or what have come to be referred to as 21st century skills necessary to assure success in a fast-paced, rapidly changing competitive environment of the future. We really should stop asking this question and put our energy and thought into determining the best ways to develop the skills and knowledge that all students need to compete, whether at college, in business or in some other part of the work force. All students should graduate from high school with a basic set of core abilities that would allow them to pursue a college education or to successfully compete in whatever they determine is an exciting and challenging path way to success for themselves.
