Of course not, if college is defined by a four-year university degree. That’s the point that’s missing in this essay arguing that college isn’t for everyone. Of course it isn’t, and of course there are jobs that don’t require college degrees. But jobs that require some kind of post-secondary work are on the rise, and not preparing students for that reality would be a mistake.
