There is a problem with the perception of post-high school options despite the fact that many other nations encourage their students to “follow their own pathway,” which includes trade school. This problem negatively affects American high school students because the message is that “no child should be left behind” and thus every student should be ready to attend a 4-year college. However, this is not the case, nor is it the best option for every student. Therefore, a study of post-high school options is needed to provide students with alternatives to a 4-year college plan.
