Going to college used to be a passport to future success, but that’s no longer the case. For some students, it’s still a good choice that leads to a successful career after graduation, but for many their degrees are worthless pieces of paper. Choose the wrong program and graduation is more likely to lead to disillusionment and debt than to a steady paycheck.

Yet parents, guidance counsellors, and politicians still push higher education as if it’s the only option for building a secure future. In this book, Ken S. Coates and Bill Morrison set out to explore the many educational opportunities and career paths open to high-school students and those in their twenties. This book is designed to help Americans in their teens and twenties decide whether to pursue a degree, enrol for skills training, or investigate one of the many other options that are available.
If you listen to the general chatter from parents, guidance counselors, and politicians, you would think that college is the only option that ensures your future success. That's no longer true. This book is designed to help anyone who is under thirty and lives in the United States make the best possible educational and career choices.
