Re: “Mayor’s race: Woodards not educated enough, (TNT letter, 10/31).
I understand that the community college English instructor wants to protect her job, but I need to let her know that it’s very possible for people to learn critical thinking and writing skills without a college education.
Having a college degree is not necessarily the bellwether of a person’s intelligence. Look at our president. He has a degree from Wharton which he brandishes like a weapon. Not only are his critical thinking skills is question, but his verbal and written skills rise no higher than a sixth-grade bully.
When we start painting entire populations with a broad brush, we will become our own worst enemy.
Some of the most successful people I know rose to their level of accomplishment without a college degree. Actions speak louder than parchment.
