4. I especially support #3 &4

When I graduated my intention was to go into engineering. I had to face the painful reality that I was lacking in the two "M's". Money and math. I blew off my senior year enjoying a better social life rather than burying my head in books.
I enjoyed a wonderful social life with most of my time and mental effort invested in philosophy and other esoteric interests.
I made the decision to attend a trade school that I could afford and gave me the opportunity to use my skills and not require me to forsake all the other aspects of a fulfilling life that would be required to pursue my initial goal.

My chosen trade afforded me the opportunity to work in and around primary educators. Virtually to a person they were all dedicated to do the job they were hired for. I can't even recall the number that were in the classroom in the middle of summer or hours after class preparing to do their job to the best of their ability.
Every job should be respected for their contribution, especially tradesmen and teachers. From my perspective, the hardest job anyone can try to do is to teach.
