WE MUST STOP TELLING PARENTS AND OUR CHILDREN THE UNIVERSITY IS THE ONLY OPTION - TECHNICAL TRAINING IS ALSO IMPORTANT AND CAN LEAD TO GOOD WAGES

Every university should have to publish in a way everyone can see their drop out rate, the level of student debt of the students who drop out, and their student loan default rate. This will get parents and their children thinking about all of their options. If you want medical training - go Air Force - for a year you will never leave Texas. You will be based in San Antonio. They will pay you $1,5660 a month plus feed you, and give you a place to live. When you consider the free rent and food it is like getting paid about $30,000 a year right out of high school, plus your job training is free. Where is there a better deal? Guys you can be a jet mechanic and when you get out go work for the airlines with a life time of free travel. Think - working with your hands and mind together can bring you great benefits.

I totally agree with you.
I have a cousin who works with a national company that build houses for the army. The man is just a high school graduate (no college at all) and makes $30 an hour!!! His take home pay is around $4000 a month. I went to college and make about 1,000 less!!
