Higher study is not required for everyone. There are some people who do not need higher study, for example those who plan to go into the family business. That is as long as the family business isn't law or medicine. Many people do very well without higher education and it is definitely not for everyone.
Higher education is not required for everyone. Although it is recommended, I think people can be sucessful without it. Some people are just not made for university and can do better without going to college. Some people will go off to be actors and some people will get entry level jobs but college is not necessary
