Marcy you are so right.

Our family's Jaguar repair "guy" is the most successful person in our circle. I garrantee if a parent paid him to apprentise their child, that kid would do as well at age 18 as a 28 year old graduate med student with $100k in loans.
You can't imagine how many of My friends have lost out due to GSL's (Garranteed Student Loans) loans for studying things because a box had to be checked on the application.
All is like Ron preached, put ed and it's cost in the hands of parents...

That's why I believe Brown vs Board of Ed. was a mistake. The fight should have been to end gov schooling instead of adding to it. "Separate but equal" means black people have a right to pimp tax payers also! Even though it led to My Dad at NYU and My Mom going to U of Maryland.
