A Matter Of Opinion

<em>We've been working on the railroad...</em>

Today's editorial pointed out that four-year degrees don't suit everybody. Society needs those trained in technical skills and for some young people, the trades are a perfect fit for their abilities.

One style of education doesn't fit all. Society needs doctors, lawyers and other professionals, but a vibrant and healthy society depends just as much on its builders, welders, plumbers, nurse's assistants and firefighters.

We're interested in hearing from readers who don't have four-year degrees and are doing just fine, thank you.
