Higher Education is Extremely Valuable Higher education is defined as education that exceeds high school or education provided by a college or university. For high school students, especially high school seniors, the decision of whether or not to attend an institute for higher education is major an issue for them. Many have the idea that college consist of four years or sometime more; however, there are some colleges that are technical which is a two year school that helps receive a degree faster in some occupations.
