Time to Take Charge!
Parents and students need to stop blindly going through K-12 education without doing the necessary research to identify the most appropriate colleges and careers. Whether or not students attend good high schools with well-informed counselors, the information is only a mouse click away:
- The U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center serves as a valuable resource to compare tuition costs and the net prices of college
- The U.S. Department of Education College Navigator provides detailed information on all U.S. colleges and universities (including admissions, costs, graduation rates, and student demographics)
- The Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Handbook provides information on hundreds of types of jobs and the job markets in each State
- The Federal Student Aid website provides links to a broad range of websites to assist students in preparing for their education
