For some, this article may serve to balance the argument many of us hold–that among those kids we serve in K-12, we MUST prepare every child for full-college and career readiness.  For me, the article bolsters the argument FOR preparing every child for a successful career that includes college training.

Other data that create the compelling case for college for as many as we can help get across that finish line are included in my blog post from November 23 about College Costs Soaring–is it worth it?
