No child left behind…

Except the one who really shouldn’t go to college.
Something that’s left out of our educational system is preparation for those careers that do not require college, that leave out those students who are not, and never will be, college bound.

Why do we think it’s bad if a kid doesn’t go to college? We still need carpenters, mechanics, other skilled tradesmen/tradeswomen, don’t we? Can everyone be in management? Do we need 35 million stockbrokers? Why don’t we offer something for those kids who would be happy to learn a trade?

What’s wrong with the system?
