Why are parents still brainwashed to Want their kids to go to College when we know College is not the only solution and it's not for all?

Shows, talk shows, tv, teachers, etc.. They all brainwash people to think College makes you get the dream job and to succeeed. We've all known that is so fake.

What are Environmental Studies people ending up as? Waitresses!!

Of course some do do stuff with their major but that's not all. Some people , like me, just went to College cause i was expected to, ..Did i become great? No, cause i never had the personality to be ambitious and to be a busines type person.

I would've been better if i had done some other type of job training.

So why the College myth continues ?

Although it is difficult get good jobs nowadays, having your education is very important. Parents always want what is best for their kids and education is the best investment parents can give their children.

@dobel I somewhat agree with you. I think part of the push for college enrollment is actually in support of education and a better future but I also think that people forget colleges are a business like structure and must advertise to make money. Societal pressure to keep up with the Jones is also a major factor.
