Fallacy of College and Career Readiness

Sunday night I was part of a panel on the Total Education Network, hosted by the erstwhile Neil Haley. Neil is a former professional wrestler and teacher and has really extensive background in interviewing celebrities such as the cousin of the guy who cleaned Terry Bradshaw's underwear in 1976.

Anyway, so I appeared as part of the panel last night, well Sunday night, along with Jason the Public School Guy as we discussed Pre-Kindergarten and the fallacy of college and career readiness.

The entire exchange is being streamed to various radio stations, terrestrial and Internet, across 180 countries this week but can be heard here right now as you read this.

Again, thanks to Neil Haley for allowing me to participate.

I wonder who has a better standard of living-- the person with a stable vocational trades job and is making over 50K? or the teacher that has to put up with constant harassment by a supervisor (and yawns from the teachers union) and stands to lose their home because they'll get a 3020a? Who can sleep calmly? Who has free weeknights or free weekends?
Conclusion from just this picture:
anyone pursuing a college career instead of a secure, respectable trade is an idiot.
