An intellectually challenged neighbor asked me what I knew about BOCES. I don't know much about it, but I heard they have programs so the intellectually disabled can learn how to trim toe nails and change light bulbs at the Ford Plant

Well, way back in happier times, when we actually had jobs in WNY, say the early 70's. Schools offered the opportunity to orientate students in trades such as... carpentry, welding, machining, electric, plumbing, auto mechanics, auto body, food service, nursing,... for those who were not going on to college either because of their grades or economic status...And I'd say that yes, it was a successful program, until the Carter Depression hit...Nowadays, obviously any idiot can go on to college...

Let's be more specific about the BOCES "nursing" program. BOCES does not educate REAL nurses, they just train LPN's (Let's Pretend Nurse) and Nursing Assistants.

I was at a party one time and made a bet about the fact I have low blood pressure. A BOCES-trained LPN tried to take my BP, but she did not know how to do it. She blamed it on the fact she used the automated cuffs at the nursing home where she worked. She is an idiot

As previously stated, BOCES, started students, in the direction of a trade, or craft. Nobody graduated high school with a degree in nursing, (or anything else)...one would predict you to throw stones at the less fortunate, and those who did not have the same opportunities as others...

"Opportunities" ?

Poor people can get NYS TAP grants and Federal loans and grants. I went to UB FREE.

The reason people go to BOCES is because they lack brains

And YOU begrudge ME for taking $42 in foodstamps.
How much did it cost us hard working taxpayers to send you to U.B. for four years " FREE" ?
And I spent over $200 dollars out of MY pocket helping other people during that Blizzard and got $42 back.
What made you so special that YOU went to U.B. for four years " FREE"?
If you went to U.B. for four years for " free" are you sure your mom and dad didn't get foodstamps during the Blizzard too,
600,000 other people in the Buffalo area did.
Have a nice night
