Four-year schools not only pathway to a career

Four-year schools not only pathway to a career

This article addresses my concern about the messaging around the idea of “college for all.” This can be a very misleading–and costly–mindset. I can’t recall the source but about 1/3 of all jobs actually require a 4 year college degree, yet we persist in foisting the idea that everyone needs to go to “college”–there are more options that the 4-year model. We really need to clean up our language about college: it really should be about the need for life-long learning which means something quite different than just “going to college.”
