Rebel, your view, shared by most professors, was true in the last century, the Industrial Age of factories. The data proves that.

But in the 21st century, the U.S. Census data and other research all confirms:

1.College graduates earn more than trade school grads, almost $1 m. more.

2.Trade school grads actually earn more by living in communities with More, not fewer, college grads.

3.College grads - - accountants, web designers, etc. create jobs for trade school grads. Plumbers do not create Web Design jobs. Web Site designers create jobs for plumbers.

4.The economic prosperity, and quality of life is higher for Everyone in society with more college grads.

What's wrong with trade school? Those kids are not saddled with debt, and there are many, many jobs in the trade field that offer upward of $80,000/year. Lineman, plumbers, electricians, mechanics. The demand for those jobs never go away, in fact they have more openings than they can fill. Everyone I know who went to trade school has a high paying job. Most set their own hours. Most people I know with 4-year or Masters degrees are working for $12-$17/hr with ZERO chance for advancement.
