ABSTRACT
The article discusses perspectives on the challenge for Albertan male youth to prioritize and engage themselves in post-secondary education for them to achieve long-term goals and aspirations in life. Research shows that men from low-income families are less likely to enrol in and attend to higher education than their women counterpart. The article cites the need to encourage young males to take the opportunity of going back to school and expand their options in building a bright future.
