You know what I'm tired of? Small town bashing. Allegan is a small town but we have a great school system. They offer a huge range of subjects and levels. We are very lucky.
Yes, there are shortcomings (although I can't think of any at the moment) but aren't there issues in every school system?
I can't tell you the number of times I've heard people say, "well, you know, I graduated from Allegan so . . . " If they're blaming their stupidity on the school system here then it is definitely misplaced blame.
I hear the same crap about the hospital. Unless you need a brain transplant there's really no need to go elsewhere. The doctors all come from the same place - a medical school. Even when they delivered babies at Allegan General people went out of town to give birth. Ok, I understand if there are special circumstances but normal delivery? I don't get it.
Same with salons. This will probably annoy some of my friends but I'm sorry. I just don't understand driving 30 or so miles to get my hair cut. Again, the stylists all went to cosmetology school. I pay $20 (tip included) for my haircut. What do they pay?
Pardon me. I'm feeling a bit snarky after just having read a dis on Facebook about the Allegan educational system.
I've taken some deep breaths and have calmed down a bit but I'm not going to delete this blog. It's mine and I get to say what I want to say. I'll admit; I'm kind of liking the power thing. hehe
