This month we feature Barbara Lloyd McMichael’s article “An Antidote to the College Admissions Scandals” that profiles Renton Technical College. This two-year school is located southeast of Seattle and serves over 9,000 students annually. The school offers over 60 career training programs (from culinary arts to welding, and a whole lot in between) as well as classes that help students brush up on background skills needed to succeed in college and the workplace.  

NOTES FROM THE WORKING CLASS: "Top Soil"

In the 1980s I had the good fortune to attend an event where Sherry Lansing gave the keynote address. She said that as a Hollywood executive, “she was always in search of good talent….and furthermore… that good talent would always rise to the top and be rewarded.” Her comments stayed with me through the years. Sherry Lansing’s perspective is strong and simple. Work hard and reap reward. I believed her then and I believe her now, but there is a flip side to the playing field.
