From the time we are five years old we are put into school, and we stay in school for the next thirteen years of our lives. We are babied and led by the hand throughout our elementary and secondary school years. After high school some people need some time to think about if they want to go to college or not, I know that i did. I took almost a year off in between college and high school to figure out what I wanted to do with my life.
College is not for everyone, some people do not even go to college, they might go to a trade school, or not go to either of these two options. According to Robert T. Perry in his essay ‘ On “Real Education” ‘, 90 % of the fastest growing jobs will all require some form of post secondary education. So, yes college really is important. Whether you take one year or maybe, some people, even five years to decide what you want, take some action, so that you can plan for that rainy day in the future.
