The numbers don’t lie when it comes to a college education – you’re almost guaranteed to earn more over the course of your career if you’ve got a Bachelor’s.
And for one high school in Orgeon, at least taking a shot at attending a university is required for graduation. That’s right – if you want to walk across the stage in a cap and gown, you’ve got to have been admitted to a post-secondary, degree-granting institution.
While many are behind the policy, saying it gives kids who normally wouldn’t have considered college a reason to explore higher education, so think it might cause too much pressure on already-stressed students. Some critics also contend that the only reason the school implemented the policy was to boost its ranking.
