Pecos Schools Try New Tactics to get Students to College 10/1/12
#1 Oct 2, 2012
The average cost on in state tuition in a four year college has risen 25% during Obama. Who is going to pay for all these kids to go to school China?! This may of sounded good a decade ago but it is absurd now! I can see learning a trade.

Not everyone goes to college. Some kids are destined to trade schools, working in family businesses or just working. I went to work right after graduating HS and make more than a lot of college graduates. I have worked with college graduates that were dumber than sticks. I once worked for a major oil company that hired college graduates. The first thing they did was put them to work in the field with the men that had been working all their lives. The company said they first needed to learn street smarts and how to work alongside people that knew a whole lot more than they did. It kept them humble after they moved to the office and they learned to respect the people that worked under them. I think that the schools should push "Higher Education" instead of "Go to College". No matter what job you have you will always be learning new things.

WTF If everyone goes to college a diploma is worth nada!!! And dont these stupid fools know it's a way to enslave our youth to be in debt with student loans! Most kids need to get to work and not be drains on economy with student loans Equals welfare!Learning a trade seems like a better option. And let's face it some are just ditch diggers and that's all they will be.
