It is a mistake to focus all our educational efforts on providing "college" opportunities. There are plenty of those available. What we need is more vocational education. There are large numbers of young people who don't need or want to go to college and who would never succeed at college. They aren't succeeding - they are dropping out and trying to pay off student loans while working at low-skill service jobs. They don't need algebra or western civ, but they do need computers and other technology, trade skills, skills that will allow them to get jobs that are actually available now and will be in the years to come. Higher education is largely a money-making scam that is taking advantage of many of our young people instead of meeting their needs. As my screen name indicates, I am a teacher in Arkansas.
