If you go to one of these high schools you are on the fast-track to developing your mind. The importance of a college education increases more every day. In the 1940s it was OK for our high schools to produce 20% of the "professional class" 20% of the office/support staff, and 60% of the agriculture/mechanical workers. Unfortunately, our economy has now changed due to free trade and almost every American needs to become a part of the "professional class."
COLLEGE MATTERS (Youtube.com/CollegeResearchVideo) if you want to become a part of this "professional class." If you want to earn a nice salary, own your own home, and work in a fairly stable job, you must develop your brain. I know that you are going through some growing pains right now, but keep muddling through it because it will be worth it the day you cut your first paycheck. The alternative of not going to college and being relegated to directly compete in anything involving manual labor is not enticing given our global economy.
