This article was in the NY Times on Sunday. It talks about steering more kids away from college and into vocational and technical training because so many people drop out of college and the jobs that are supposed to grow the fastest in the future, only 7 out of 30 will require a BA. What do you think?
Personally, I think this is a good idea. So many schools are cutting vocational programs and ignoring kids who are not "college material" as my mother used to say. I think it is not realistic to expect everyone to go to college and unfair to ignore those who choose not to.
