Priorities

Last winter, I talked with someone in the gym who told me about his recent visit to his daughter in college. He talked about what sport she was playing and how wonderful her coach was. When I asked what his daughter was majoring in, he didn’t know. When parents have those kinds of priorities, I cannot be surprised that students don’t consider their education very important.

    Sad state of affairs. Perhaps your question made him think and make an effort to find out.

    I hope so. To do him credit, he was embarrassed.
