Students fooled

The rebranding of a technical school as a technical “college” as reported in the July 14 article Schools gain ‘college’ cachet, is a major disservice to students, potential employers and our state college system. This is a thinly veiled public relations campaign that only further confuses students and hiring managers, and waters down the strong image that our community’s true colleges have built.

Whatever spin they want to put on it, the fact remains that Atlantic, McFatter and Sheridan are technical centers, not colleges. What’s in a name? In the case of these sneaky schools, not a whole lot.
