Well folks, let's talk about why they call it 'higher' education. It's not because they teach it on the top of Mount Everest, although that would be a cool field trip! No sir, it's because it's a level above secondary, or high school education. Think of it like a video game, you've beaten the high school boss and now you're leveling up to the big leagues! Higher education is your ticket to new challenges and epic loot (or in this case, knowledge and skills)!
