I don't know if apprenticeships are the best solution for American high schools--and they are definitely incongruous with a lot of our cultural beliefs about what success is and how to achieve it--but there I've read quite a few articles and studies that indicate vocational training is effective in helping reduce high school drop out rates for lower-income students. Vocational training does not necessarily have to be blue-collar work oriented either, as cuminafterall points out.

I break clips on the first re-closure almost every time I encounter one. Boo clips.
"Visitors to the London Olympics can be assured of one thing – their cab driver will know where they are going thanks to a rigorous test that takes years to master." That is certainly different from the cab drivers in DC.... Is there a separate link to the cab driver profiles or am I just missing something though? I'm very curious about them.
@stuffisthings A "food incubator" is term for this type of business model, not kitchen equipment. Union Kitchen is food incubator, it doesn't have a food incubator.
