The importance of college education
When you are at high school, you usually don’t know in what direction your life will go, so you are not quite sure whether to choose college as an option or not.
Young people at that age tend to question themselves, wondering if college is something they need, and the importance of it.
You need to know that college will give you lots of opportunities in your life that high school alone cannot give.
It is true that college degree is not a guarantee for anything in life, but it is definitely something that will increase your chances for better life.
Many high school students are sick of studying, and they want to immediately start earning money as soon as they finish with high school. That is completely logical, considering your age and your wish to become independent and enjoy your life.
If you choose only high school education, you will not be able to obtain the number of high-paying jobs that were available few years ( and we can freely say decades ) ago.
You cannot compare today, with the times when your parents and grandparents were young, cause back then they had more opportunities and possibilities to do something with their lives.
College will also help you to make some connections, that will later be valuable once you start your job search. Having a college degree will provide you greater promotion opportunities, and at the same time it will mean more money for you.
It is not something you can understand when you are 15-16, but it is something you will learn to appreciate once you are at least 5-6 years older.
