It does not appear President Bush's vocational education proposal will help the HVAC worker shortage.
I doubt it was because a high school or community college counselor steered you towards it. For a long time, many counselors and educators in the nation's school systems have told students their only option upon graduation is to go to college. And yet, as the graduation rates of U.S. colleges and university's show, that's not the right choice for many students. For some, the work load is too much. For others, family duties or economics dictate that a student head straight into the work force.
