This article is absolutely an inspiration. Being the mother of 5 grown children I know first hand the unique individual personalities children can have. My oldest son graduated high school, but chose to go to ITT Tech instead of the 4-year traditional college...he graduated 2nd in his class in computer electronics and works at a position that pays him $65,000 a year. Children who do have the money to go to a school like ITT Tech need these alternatives being offered. A 4 year degree never was and never will be "for everyone". As a 60's high school graduate I came through school when "Trade" school were in high demand and kids attended regular classes for a certain time each day and then went to their "trade classe"-auto mechanics, printing, etc. So I know the value of the "alternative" to the four-year degree education. We need to get back to "sound" education and not just trying to herd everying thru the same "hole" if they don't fit.
