Below is an interesting infographic that illustrates a few of these factors. That’s not to say that your circumstances should ever prevent you from getting an education, but recognizing potential obstacles (such as the availability of schools in your area, your ability to pay for higher education, etc.) early on can help you more aptly prepare and overcome any issues that would otherwise prevent you from attaining such a worthy goal.
