Not sure if school teachers are blue collar or not, but I know a large disproportionate amount of them.Um, teachers have bachelor's degrees and graduate work to obtain a credential.In addition, many, if not most, have advanced degrees (MA, PhD).So, no, teachers aren't blue collar.My point was that your sample size is limited. You don't know many blue collar people, so your perception is that college is a must.I don't know how old your kids are now, but what happens if they don't perform well academically?What happens if they just aren't college material or aren't interested in college? There are still apprenticeship programs for trades. There are still jobs that need to be done that don't require college. Oh, yeah, there are a lot of jobs that require some post-secondary education, but that's often job training, not necessarily traditional education. For example, the local CC does a cosmetology degree that requires 47 credit hours of specific courses. Ishtar
