My, aren't YOU the BRAVE one! Didn't quite catch your handle, though...since I'm sure you'd be PROUD to tell us...right?
Guess what, Mr. "Proud-of-my-handle": kids make MISTAKES every day...hell, even us ADULTS have been known to make a mistake or two. I've been told that's because we're HUMAN.
OH, WAIT...YOU probably NEVER made a mistake in your life, so certainly YOU have the right to complain when a young man just out of school makes one. HOW DARE HE make a wrong choice, or a wrong decision...after "we" bought him books and sent him to school, nonetheless! Why, the unmitigated GALL of a young man making a WRONG decision, after what we worked SO hard to teach him! Why, we need to send him somewhere so someone will "take him down a few notches," mentally AND physically...ain't that right? And sending him for MORE schoolin' is ALWAYS gonna be a wrong choice, since he apparently "didn't learn nothin' " the FIRST time, in the public schools...ain't that right, too?
In case you hadn't noticed, Lanse isn't one of those kids who can't spell, can't add, and can't speak or write in coherent sentences. Apparently SOMETHING soaked in while he was in school...unlike MANY of the students we turn out these days. Kids like Lanse ARE the kind of kids we need to be sending on to further their education; and if he wants to do that at a TRADE school, MORE POWER TO HIM! Too many of our high schools steer kids like Lanse to community colleges for degrees that, when it's all said and done, won't buy them a cup of coffee; with the choice he's making here, Lanse can come out with a certificate AND the skills to go out and get a good-paying job...where he can become an asset to his community, not just some whiny-azz living in his mom's basement playing video games like the classmate who got his degree in "general studies."
When Lanse first came to these forums, he was a kid with a video camera who basically destroyed things. Most of us have watched him change into a young man who BUILDS things instead of destroying things. To ME, that's a sign of CHANGE...something that you apparently think he's incapable of doing.
If you give your own kids the same kind of "encouragement" you give Lanse...don't blame "society," or "public education," when they turn out to be some really screwed up examples of human beings.
