Tonawanda News — And, mind you, the College Board said that average cost nationally for an in-state public college is $22,261 per year. What did BOCES cost the high school pupil? A fraction of the cost of college, if anything at all. Even the CDL class ends up being one-eighth the cost of one year of college.
It should be obvious to teenagers and parents that vocational education shouldn’t be considered an afterthought. It’s arguably a better choice than college.Bob Confer is a Gasport resident and vice president of Confer Plastics Inc. in North Tonawanda. He also writes for the New American at TheNewAmerican.com.
