- skills that will serve them well in the future whether it be career, artistic, musical or educational.

Then 9 times out of 10 they need to be in some trade school. IMHO, college is way over rated. Yes there are certain fields where you need college (my career included), but I seen way to many of my friends kids graduating with someone having a debt and no real career. Meanwhile, the kid that is driving a long haul truck or arc welding is making a very comfortable living.
