    Education cannot simply be about encouraging gifted students to excel.  Society must make a place for all.  We cannot simply ignore large swathes of citizens.

      That was my point - not every person in college bound, nor has our country been particularly well-served by the continual push that every single child must go to college.  It has created a whole generation that "looks down their nose" at manufacturing as a legitimate career choice resulting in massive gaps between jobs and skilled people to fill them.

      We pay a very good wage to these apprentices and will even pay for continuing education.
