I hope you understand that my point here is not about immigration, but about the decline of american (natives) ability to recognize and appreciate the fact that all our kids do not need to be educated to the nth degree.
Fred started roofing at sixteen. His daddy was picking potatos at fourteen and so was his mother. His father drove a truck all his life and made a very comfortable living. I am sick and tired of being made to feel that I am a failure as a parent because I don't have a college plan for my kids. I figure if they have dream and goals, they need to put their nose to the grindstone and keep those grades at a's. To me that is a sign that continuing education is a worthy investment.
