Getting it out in the open: \"College is not for Everyone\"\r\n\r\nBy Dr. Andre M. Perry, Contributing Columnist\r\nMay 21, 2007 talkback\r\n\r\nThere\'s something disingenuous about the phrase, \"college is not for everyone.\" As soon as a seemingly concerned citizen says it, the conversation quickly moves to the need for more vocational and trade school options in public schools. Funny how often people talk about trade schools in discussions about inner-city schools or about how schools could uplift poor communities of color.\r\n\r\n
