Post-Secondary Education

If the Tennessee General Assembly wants to expand educational access, they should consider all kinds of education:

The idea that every high school graduate needs to go on to college sounds like a wonderful notion, but if you saturate the market with bachelor's degrees, the very education that we are telling Tennessee kids is so necessary for their success becomes significantly devalued because so many more people will have B.A.'s. As a society and as a State, we should desire to make our colleges, universities, and community colleges more accessable to potential students who want and deserve to be there, especially those who might not otherwise be able to afford it. However, there should be some caution exercised when encouraging students to go on to college. Not every youngster is college material, and even many who are might have some talents and abilities that would lead them in another direction aside from college or university.

What about those kids?

David this Bill Does just that, it is designed to steer kids who might not be ready for a 4 year college to a community college or a technical school. It will also help when some of those kids at the tech schools or the community colleges decide to go on to a 4 year school, with the credit hours taken at one school will be accepted at the next school.

this is for the kids to get ready for more mature role in studying, somehow we only have to think how about those children who can't afford going to school or for another years? maybe government should have something to do with that..
