What They're Saying

"It took me years to understand how important this whole educational path for people is in this country. I never got it the first couple of years, and I said, 'Why is the program really not that important to people, and why is it always about where you are going to college?' What’s the high school? [I'd be asked] 'Where are your kids going to school?’ I always responded, 'My kids are going to school at the next closest school. What’s the big deal?' Over the years, I saw that those are the reasons why you think that way and it's because it’s a completely different setup."
