Reasons for Not Pursuing a Higher Education
Although many people believe you have to have a higher education; a lot of people do not feel it is necessary to have a higher education. There are many reasons people choose not to pursue a higher education. A few of those reasons include: possible debt incurred, not being guaranteed a higher paying job and success can be achieved without having a degree.

Some people believe that getting a higher education is worth the possible debt no matter what because they believe they will be making a better life for their families, or they will be guaranteed higher paying jobs. However, a recent report released by Mintel in April of 2014, states the percentage of consumers who think student loans are a good investment dropped from 54% in 2012 to just 20% in 2014. (Andrus 2014) Danielle Andrus stated in 2014, “Mintel surveyed 2,217 Americans 18 and older.” (Andrus 2014) Even with a higher education, not everyone can afford their loan payments, because they are so high. “In 2012, the majority of respondents were paying less than $300 a month (79%), and only 21% had payments over that amount. Two years later, half of respondents had monthly payments of $300 or less, and the percentage paying more than $300 every month increased to 30%. Furthermore, 5% were actually paying more than $1,000.” (Andrus 2014) Some people believe that having a higher education will guarantee a higher paying job, but that is not true. There are people I personally know whom have great jobs, and they did not pursue a higher education to get them. Even with having a higher education, you are not guaranteed a higher paying job. Some people feel that because they will have to work their way up to the top either way, there is no point in pursuing a higher education.... Show More
