You might be wondering why your child has been coming home talking about "The Path to College" this week when it seems so very far away. For many of them, it is far away. We calculated that Pre-K students will start college in the year 2028 and complete a four-year degree in the year 2032--wow!
But the reality is that it is not too early to start talking about the idea with our kids. In my visits with Pre-K through 2nd grade classes this week, I've asked the students three questions:
- What is college?
- When will you go to college?
- What will you learn there?
