NUMBER 183 THE NEWSPAPER OF EDUCATION RIGHTS APRIL 2001

Letter to the Editor of Education Reporter
School-to-Work

Dear Editor: 
Just wanted to thank you for being a strong voice for righteousness. I read your School-to-Work info and want you to know you are on the money.

I work for a school-to-work program here at Valdosta State, and you would not believe some of the things going on. From the wasted monies to just the brainwashing of our students, School-to-Work is helping to damage our great educational system.

In this area, parents are doing more to give STW control over their kids. How? By placing them in such a materialistic environment; many of the kids need jobs to pay for those new cars, new apartments, new clothes, new cell phones, etc., and we (educators) wonder why the average GPA is now 2.4 or less.

Please be strong and courageous on this issue. After all, our kids are worth it!

Mike McKinley, Academic Coordinator
Cooperative Education
Valdosta State University

P.S. Freshmen can no longer be called "freshmen." The new, politically-correct term is "First Year Student."
