Jay Mathews, education columnist for the Washington Post, recently wrote an article dissecting a question he was asked by a friend regarding her child, which was "What should I do if my child isn't going to college?", i.e., four-year university. Indeed, as Mathews points out, all students need to pursue some form of postsecondary education in order to have the best chances at career success over a lifetime. What other options exist for students besides "college" or four-year university and how do students and families know if they are valid, worthy options? These are core questions Mathews explores in his article, "What if my Child isn't Interested in Going to Four-Year College?"
