Many students, as Hardin said, continue to view technical professions such as electricians or plumbers as less prestigious than ones that can be attained with a four-year degree. The thing is that many careers that can be attained with an associate’s degree or a bit of technical training after high school provide starting pay that’s greater than those mandating a four-year degree. 2018-07-27T12:54:58-04:00
