Students are rethinking their education pathway beyond high school
Regardless of background, more than half of today's high schoolers are open to a path other than a four-year degree, according to the ECMC Group/VICE Media surveys of more than 6,000 high school students, conducted between February 2020 and November 2022. This desire is fueled by a concern about the cost of college, the potential for excessive student loan debt and the desire for an educational experience that takes less time and has a direct connection to a job.
The Question The Quo campaign is designed to empower Gen Z teens to learn about the various educational pathways available after high school and to take the one that is right for them.
