  1. Hello-
    An education degree is definately worth it. Our children are well deserved but underserved. If you can help our babies to succeed-A Masters Degree in education is a wonderful start!

    I agree Stanley Couch waxes poetic on Wynton Marsalis CD and album covers. He has a way with words and is ‘well deep’ in a number of issues.

    Good luck changing the world one child at a time!!

  2. Mr. Couch

    I find you soooo interesting, and the questions and answers you bring are very intelligent, and make you think……

    I think it would be a pleasure to see you as the spokes person for our “Generation” to see….

    I’ve seen you so many times on TV. I enjoy what you say and what you don’t say.. That’s what we need in our community “Today”. I understand your “Take” on a lot of “issues” we have in our community….

    I’m from a small town in Illinois/Waukegan and I’ll tell you our people are lost…. Im working on my “Masters” Degree in Education but Im still a little conflicted… Is it worth it… Not sure… My son is also in college, I want him to be a “Journalist” to be able to report what he sees, and travel doing it. It’s not about the “money”. It’s about the “Truth”. As for me and mines we will “serve”.
