True, but even many trade schools are part of the "higher education system" in a sense and can be difficult to navigate if you don't have any support or know of someone who can help you. And unfortunately, there are still many who don't know anyone (or know them well enough) to ask for help figuring out steps necessary.

It's supposed to be hard - if it wasn't hard everyone would do it.
The hard, is what makes it great.
