live in a highly competitive world, one that is growing more so with each passing day. If you compare the college admissions process when you were a child to what it is today, well, you might not have been accepted to your college at all. I’m also guessing that you were given more options than today’s parents are willing to give their kids. Today, college is an expectation, even though some kids are definitely not “college kids” and don’t have any desire to attend. For months we watched the news cover over-the-top parents going to extreme
measures to make sure their kids got into prestigious colleges. Some of those kids didn’t want to go to college at all, but they weren’t given the choice. Here in Houston, we hear about the desperate need for welders, for oil tanker workers, for service industry workers, and so on, yet we continue to insist that our children - despite their abilities or desires must go to college.
