What the critics of school garden programs fail to address is not all kids are college bound. With so much emphasis on preparing kids for college, where's the preparation, or exposure, for kids that want and need more technical training? It's these kids that don't see any point in finishing school because they want/need jobs, immediately, not 4-8 years down the road. School gardens give all kids an education in nutrition, and the not-bound-for-college kids exposure to possible vocations.

Excellent, excellent point. But no one in America is willing to admit they're okay with the idea of not pursuing higher education. In fact, most Americans probably aren't okay with that idea. It's college (my way) or the highway.
