I disagree with William Miller's comment about the ISD Vocational Education system being flawed. We have a huge shortage of "Skilled" trades here in Michigan and not enough students in the pipeline to meet the demand. I don't have figures to back up my opinion but I do know several businesses that can't find young people willing to work in these skilled positions. Not every child has to go to college to get a job which to me is a flawed way of thinking and not every child is capable of earning a higher educational degree. It seems to me that our society is pushing kids into college and they are not able to find jobs here in Michigan in their chosen field of study (the pipeline is full) but there is a shortage of skilled workers for sure.
