College Is Not Always the Answer
Today’s podcast is my opinion that college is not the path for every High School Graduate. The kids who struggled in school, hated school, or had significant learning problems may not be the best candidates for college. They may be better of in technological training programs or entering the work force in areas that interest them. Not every job needs a college diploma. (Source: The Shrink Is In)
