There seems to be a cycle for people who decide that school or college is not their thing. While it is okay that people realize that school is not for them, it could be hard for them to get a good paying job if they are not skilled in something. I think that learning a skill or a trade could be good for many people, it has to be hard work to get somewhere without the credentials, however. Places like Coastal Truck Driving School teaches people the skill of driving a tractor trailer. My friends told me that the schools like this could be really expensive. I had no idea that that going to a trade school could be done with federal financial aid. There are a lot of people that could use a trade school like this if they decide that they do not want to go to college after high school. My daughter is number two in her junior high school class and I am almost positive that she will go to college on some kind of scholarship.
Before my friend could figure out the money and how he was going to pay for the trailer school, he went online and filled out all of the financial aid paperwork. He said that it was not easy, and I was happy for him after he said it took him two hours but he got it done. It was a lot for him to fill out all of the paper work because he does not have a good reading comprehension and I know that it would have taken me less than half the time to fill it out, but it was done by him alone. I could not imagine having to worry about going to school with no financial aid.
