More and more high school graduates abandoning four-year colleges


The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has the details.

“I’ve been a guidance counselor for 12 years now and there is absolutely a growing trend where students are much more financially responsible,” said Matt Anselmino, a guidance counselor at Shaler Area High School. “Students are asking themselves if the investment in a traditional four-year education is going to outweigh the debt they incur.”

For last year’s graduating class at Shaler Area High School, the most popular choice for higher education among its 380 grads was Community College of Allegheny County North, followed by the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus, Duquesne University and Robert Morris University, Mr. Anselmino said.
