If your son or daughter dropped out of college, believe us, you are not alone. Whether for financial reasons, inability to keep up with the workload, or simply not being ready or suited for college, students are leaving college at an alarmingly high rate.
It’s easy for parents to become discouraged when their children return home without a college degree and without job prospects, but it’s important to keep your son or daughter’s best interest at heart. For one reason or another, if she left school, she was most likely not at the right one for her anyway.
Thisarticle discusses the extreme debt many students are left with after graduating from college, as well as the fact that many schools are being accused of “education malpractice.” This could, for instance, mean that your child is sitting in a lecture hall with 500 other students with a teacher or graduate student who couldn’t care less about the quality of education their students receive.
Therefore, it is imperative that you look at your child’s needs—both social and academic—before sending him back to school, so that you don’t continue to waste precious time and money. While a college degree is an asset in the workforce, your child should be getting it from the right college for the right reasons when he is ready.
