Most women agree that education opens more doors to a career that is satisfying and well-paid than anything else. To train for any career you need to go through high school and then do further training. But these days not everyone has to complete their year 12 certificate. If they have aptitude for certain other skills such as mechanics, they can go to TAFE and do an apprenticeship while they are still as school. This gives them a good In while they are still young enough to get by on an apprentice’s wages – for instance, they usually still live at home and they are not married.
However, many young people so hate school that they don’t do as well as they could and so their score is not high enough for university entrance. But once they get past all the hassle of being a teenager, they often settle down in a job they don’t like and start to wish they had done more while they were at school.
