    school when the Welfare to Work program provided money to go to a 2 year college or trade school.
    That was the early to mid 90s. By around 1997-1998, that stopped.  

    So your point is well taken.

    I was so upset when the Welfare to Work program stopped the Welfare to Vocational College funding program.  I was livid as it helped a great many of my clients. Besides the electrician, 3 of them went to become legal or medical secretaries through going to a 2  year business college and 2 others went on to obtain jobs in a tech field via that program.
