More tax money wasted.

Some of the first programs to be cut were the voc-ed classes in the No Child Left Behind idea! NCLB has turned-out to be a waste of 10 good years of educational opportunity..

I don't think that Evans and Phares are claiming to come up with a new idea, but that it needs expanded upon and I agree.

ON top of that, it's expensive as heck. Ever try to get a plumber or appliance repairman, or a cobbler?

Vocational education has been part of the curriculum in County Schools for the past 50 years. long before Phares was appointed and much prior to "Buckwild" Evans'election,Marshall County embarked on relative vocational training programs.
