What's REALLY wrong with our education system

It's not because of 'No Child Left Behind Act' that Johnny can't read.

A card arrived December 27 at our home from an acquaintance, who decided after she graduated from college, that she would teach school only to ditch it a couple of years later to become a Real Estate Agent. Here is what she said:

"I just wanted to let you know that I am now starting a carrier in the Real Estate field. Any of your referals will be apprecheated."

Oh, the quality of college graduates. I know a lady who has a Masters in Business Administration and she can't even balance her own check book. Her finances stay in ruins while she charges up more debt to go on cruises with her equally indebted boyfriend. How would you like HER to run (ruin) your business?

She's okay. She's a horsetrainer/ groomer on the side. I'd like to get her to groom my mule but I'm afraid her husband and my ball and chain would object.

On my recent visit to a nearby farm, I saw a horse being groomed in front of a school trip group. As the groomer brushed the stallion's belly, we all saw his horse of a cock enlarge. All the adults (groomer, teachers and chaperones, and myself) looked nervously at each other, hoping none of the kids noticed. Who are we kidding, there was no way anyone could miss anything that large.

What college did she go to? There are so many trashy colleges out there, most people would be better off going to a trade school. I don't know when/how this whole everybody go to college thing started. Most people will just end up wasting money and time for a few years, then make less than they would have had they gone to trade school.
