Enrollment declines continued to worsen this spring. Total post-secondary enrollment fell to 16.2 million this spring, marking a one-year decline of 4.1 percent or 685,000 students. Enrollment declined this spring at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Following a 3.5 percent drop last spring, post-secondary institutions have lost nearly 1.3 million students since spring 2020. Undergraduate enrollment accounted for most of the decline, dropping 4.7 percent this spring or over 662,000 students from spring 2021. As a result, the undergraduate student body is now 9.4 percent or nearly 1.4 million students smaller than before the pandemic.National Student Clearinghouse Research Center — https://nscresearchcenter.org/current-term-enrollment-estimates/
I wonder why so many kids are not going to college.

What about trade schools?
I am in favor of trade schools. The enrollment numbers do not include trade schools but the student debt figure probably does include trade schools.
