Let's Reframe Success for Your Students
Here’s How

How many times have you heard the words — or even uttered them yourself — “Just make sure you get your degree. You know, as a fallback.”

Except college isn’t the fallback it used to be. According to this story from All Things Considered on NPR:

“Yet, nationwide, three out of 10 high school grads who go to four-year public universities haven't earned degrees within six years, according to the National Student Clearinghouse. At four-year private colleges, that number is more than 1 in 5.”

The four-year university track is emphasized in high schools; but is it best for our students?

The New Nevada is evidence that while four-year degrees are an option, there are many pathways to a better-paying career — sometimes, far faster than four years.

According to the same NPR report: "In all, some 30 million jobs in the United States that pay an average of $55,000 per year don't require bachelor's degrees, according to the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce."

Let’s talk about pathways — to a better-paying job, to faster employment, to a career that matters and our students can be proud of.
