This AP article is poorly written and confusing, but I support the sentiment, and have for years. Four year college is not the right path for everyone, and our society loses out on skilled tradespeople, pushes young people into needless debt, and generally devalues a good blue collar work ethic on favor of bachelors degrees that are not always prudent or useful.

Huh, lots being written on this at the moment. Best I’ve seen so far is this New York Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/16/weekinreview/16steinberg.html?src=me&ref=homepage
