If money is what equates to security and happiness then the belief that college is the only option is very very flawed as a mindset.
College brings with it an average graduation gift of almost $40,000 student debt that will diminish your child's standard of living for years to come. Paying 20% of their take-home check for the next 10 years is a smack in the face every two weeks that stings more than a dominatrix's whip.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., last year focused attention on the vocational vs. academic debate by contending during his presidential campaign that “welders make more money than philosophers.”
The United States has 30 million jobs that pay an average of $55,000 per year and don’t require a bachelor’s degree, according to the Georgetown center. People with career and technical educations are actually slightly more likely to be employed than their counterparts with academic credentials, the U.S. Department of Education reports, and significantly more likely to be working in their fields of study.
