Getting a real job--

From today's Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle comes the news that their Director of Schools Sandra Husk has been given a three year contract extension after all 30 of their schools met state standards. In the article she's quoted as saying:

"I would like to see more emphasis towards vocational subjects," Steeley said. "We need to do a better job of having students prepared for the world of work when they get out of school. Not all students need to go to college or want to go to college. Some need to go to work and do a trade."
And some of those college bound students could use a bit of vocational training too. They'll probably end up 'working' at some point in their lives too.
