Please read this article all the way through, and let me know what you think. I think the author makes some points that are worth discussing, I think. Beginning in the 1930s and becoming increasingly so with our generation, we have prided ourselves, as a society, for ensuring that our children are not faced with having to decide whether to go to work or school, at least until after they have completed high school. How is that working out? Yes, it has worked out well for some kids but even before the 1930s, some kids were being educated beyond high school. In fact, that has always been the case. Other kids are unable to cut it in school, yet are too young to work, while still others complete college badly in debt, yet unable to find work, and it doesn't help that they have no work ethic. Anyhow, read this and weigh in on it. The article is called, "Let the Kids Work." By the way, here's the Photo Montage that the article references.
