    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Meh, college is overrated in many instances. We dont need more liberal arts graduates. We need skilled tradespeople.

    I was watching a YouTube segment on the Saturn V rocket that took the Apollo missions to the moon and watched the narrator say that we could not reproduce the F1 rockets that provided the 7.5 million lbs of thrust today because we dont have a skilled pool of labor to do so.

    Agree 100%. We need to return to a time when students in high school could take trades training and graduate into an apprenticeship.

    Also agree. My school district is pushing college much too hard. We are giving our 8th graders the PSAT tomorrow, which is a great opportunity, but is going to make a lot of kids soil their shorts and decide they can't do college.

    There is a balance between helping kids to reach their potential and acknowledging that college isn't for everyone.
