Having a bachelor's degree does not make a person a good citizen or qualified for a job. What is important is a good, sound elementary and secondary education with guidance for the students into a job that suits their abilities and interest. Mama and Papa may be satisfied to exist on some type of welfare, but they need to strongly encourage their children to pursue an education with the goal of getting a good job. Community and Technical Colleges that are located throughout the state can provide excellent training and skill development which lead to employment. Not all, but many Americans have become fat, lazy and complacent when it comes to service and accepting responsibility to themselves, family and country.

You people need to wake up and realize that your going to work a low paying fast food job unless you graduate from High School and College, until East KY residents get some motivation and do that things aren't going to change
