Debunking the “college for all” myth with the 1:2:7 ratio

I am driven to distraction by all the messaging and programming (AVID, Gear UP, AP, etc.) in high school the pimps the notion that everyone needs to go to college (read: a four year university). These two videos make the point very well. The first is just too well done to be ignored and raises the ratio of 1:2:7 (watch the video and I’m sure you’ll agree this is true based on your real life experience/observations. The next is with Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” fame who is both articulate and passionate about debunking this misrepresentation of real economic needs and rewards.
