For once, we can agree on something Ryan. The skilled trades may no be very romantic, but they pay a darn good living wage. When I was an Aprentice in College, we even had a few girls taking part. I also recall a trade school called Crestwood, where many bricklayers where trained, and got jobs as a result. Fast forward to today, the board wants to demolish the school to build a brand new education centre. Removing this, and other training components from public schools was a tragic mistake, given todays unfilled demands for these skilled workers. Unfortunately, there's no home-grown talent to fill them.
