U.S. spending cuts will deny college to low-income students


Poor Students at Risk for Supercommittee Cuts – Bloomberg.

Obviously, we in New Jersey must try to alleviate what is coming. But we must also expand the college-alternative which is poly-technic academies which can provide those students not inclined to a college education with the skills needed to enter  the job market and make a decent living.

We must not over-emphasize college education as the goal for every one. The poly-technics should operate in close coordination with industries in New Jersey.
