Last week we all were notified the White House had never ask Jerry L. Falwell to be part of the task force on higher education . Yesterday we were now informed by the White House he is part of the plan. The task force will be made up of 15 higher education presidents. We will see how 15 presidents represent colleges, universities, junior colleges, career schools and both private and public education. More to come!

Recently a survey of millennium age people revealed 35% of them were either running their own business or looking to start one. Some of the most famous individuals in business today did drop out of college to start their own business and realize their dreams. A pendulum of both supply and demand will move our education institutions to satisfy community needs. Internships, work-study, and closer relationships with employers with our education community will be common to the process of a holistic education.
