JA Blog: Trade School - A College Alternative In 2019

A survey conducted by  Gallup and Strada Education Network revealed that 36% of those who attended college regret their choice of major. Of those who pursued or completed a bachelor's degree, findings uncovered that 40% would pick a different field of study. That's roughly  $25,000 a year, for a student who is in-state attending a four-year university, to decide that their degree was not the best choice for them.

Junior Achievement of South Florida inspires and prepares young people to succeed in a competitive, global economy by providing real world training in financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness.
