Too cool on college

MEDFIELD

John M. of Medfield is worried because his son doesn't seem that interested in getting into college.

Ron Fletcher gives John some advice in today's "Ask the Teacher" column.

Fletcher says John should hear his son out, then make the case for a college education, emphasizing how it creates opportunities.

"Use your knowledge of your son's talents and interests to explain the relevance and worth of a college degree," he advises.
