62% of teens want to follow their own education pathway

Students are rethinking their education pathway beyond high school

In fact, more than half are open to a path other than a four-year degree, according to the ECMC Group/VICE Media survey of 1,177 high school students conducted January 4-19, 2021. This desire is being fueled by a concern about the cost of college, the potential for excessive student loan debt and the desire for an educational experience that takes less time and has a direct connection to a job.

The Question The Quo campaign is designed to empower Gen Z teens to learn about the various educational pathways available after high school and to take the one that is right for them.
