For a lot of people, going to a four-year college seems like an automatic choice when they graduate from high school. The reason is obvious - higher income. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, a bachelor's degree accounted for an average of $16,900 in additional income per year compared to a high school diploma ($30,000 versus $46,900).
If you are graduating from high school soon, or have a loved one who is approaching graduation, seriously consider trade school as an alternative option.
