I reread the thread, and apparently, I'm just really in a p!ssy mood, so I apologize.

Part of the reason I'm looking at this is the student teaching I just got done doing.

2 of the classes I taught for a semester were classes that were 80% full of students that will likely not go college. Some of them may do well in job training programs and others? I have no idea what they are going to do.

Oh, P will be an artist of some sort, maybe, and K1 could be a great salesman. M will go to school, probably through the CC college route, and R could if he'd just gain a little maturity, so could D. The only reason E was in the class was because her English skills were low, but she's very bright and motivated, so she'll go to school.

But most of the others?

I am not going to tell them they'll never get a job without college. They've been told that before. Putting that kind of pressure on them by saying college is not optional will only force them to drop out or give up even more than they have already.

So, sorry, touchy subject for me.

Ishtar
