Reality: Not every kid is college material
JEFF KALEY, Waurika News-Democrat
Give Barrack Obama credit on the issue of young people and higher education — he’s been consistent. In both of his presidential campaigns and during both tenures, Obama has consistently declared the goal of education is to make sure every young person has a college education.
It’s an admirable goal, I guess, but it’s an issues on which Obama and I don’t agree. The reality, as I see it, is: Not every high school graduate should go on to college, for several reasons.
