Ep 786 show:
Welcome back to a new week on The Perna Syndicate. I’m Mark Perna and I’m glad you are here! For the past few decades, there’s been a big push to send all kids to college once they graduate high school. A high school degree simply wasn’t enough. The idea was simple: everyone needs a college degree to get ahead and lead a better life.
But we’re now seeing a profound shift in this dynamic. According to a new survey by Multiverse, almost 70% of parents would now support their children entering the workforce right after high school.
College has traditionally been considered the route to economic security, but while that motivation remains, the facts have fundamentally changed. College is no longer the guarantee to a higher-paying job, and that’s opening up parents and young adults to consider alternative paths after high school.
And today, there are so many great paths to consider. It doesn’t matter where or how you gain the skills; all that matters is that you’ve got them.
Parents want their children to gain both financial independence and the skills needed to thrive in their career journey. And when all options are on the table, they can do both.
Tomorrow, we will look at several reasons why college may no longer deliver the best return on your investment. See you next time on The Perna Syndicate!
