This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is going straight to college the quickest route to success for high school graduates? Genevieve Morgan, author of Undecided. Navigating Life and Learning After High School, says “why rush it?” In her talk “Undecided” Morgan explores our societal attitudes towards entering college immediately after high school and provides alternative avenues for those who may want to delay the time and financial commitment that can come with a 21st century higher education.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
