College Is Not For Every Student

It is safe to say that not every student will go to college, and there is nothing wrong with students choosing not to attend college. While college might not be for everyone, CTE provides another avenue to success. A college degree is not necessary for many jobs and there is a market for high-skilled non-college educated labor. In 2017, fifty-five percent of the best-paying jobs were in manufacturing, transportation, and construction. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, a construction supervisor or mechanic can both make a median annual wage of $60,000.00. Not bad!

What would happen if educators embraced the mantra “college isn’t for everybody”? As educators, we need to realize that we do not get to choose which students will and will not go to college, and we cannot direct them to a path that they have no desire to follow. However, it is our charge to educate every student and meet their various needs. You may have a different opinion, but please consider this list of successful individuals who do not possess a college degree!
