NY Times checks out college dropout in Chilhowie

This article reprinted from the NY Times profiles the struggle of a young man from Smyth County to decide what to do about college.

The oddest part was this: "He talked about how he could become an elementary school teacher. The job would take up 180 days, not 280. Teachers do not usually get laid off or lose their pensions."
