Oh wait...yes they do.
I'm of an opposite opinion - I believe they do - but the majority of society does not believe this thought holds water. And yet, it is obvious that trades and education belong in the same arena, for multiple reasons. The most important of which we can see in the workings of any country - tradespeople are the foundation (literally) that any country has been, or will be, built upon, in the most literal sense of the word.
The stigma around trades is lessening, but it's not yet disappeared completely.
The first thing we want to ask ourselves is "Why?"
Why does this stigma around working in the trades exist? Why does this divide between standard white-collar workers and traditional blue-collar workers still present itself? Why are those who do somehow less than those who don't?
The second thing we want to ask ourselves is "What?"
What is it about someone getting their hands dirty that causes the general population to place them in a lower caste? What is it about physical labor that creates a mentality of superiority in those that do not do physical labor in exchange for a paycheck?
I lucked out this week - I found a tradesman with over 20 years experience willing to speak with me regarding these matters. He presented some thought-provoking answers to my questions, a few interesting insights into what it's like making a living as a tradesman, and provided some solid solutions to these sorts of problems and challenges for today's modern-day world.
Check out this week's podcast for the full details! You can find it on my website:

What Our Families are Saying
Star Students worked with our son for approximately 8 months. The intention was to help him get through the last few months of school and the summer, bring him up to grade level with his reading and math skills, and improve his work habits. Our son was showing a lack of enthusiasm for school, making it difficult for him to focus, and his frustration was evident when he needed to stretch himself to learn new things. It was also very important to us that he develop confidence in himself and his abilities, and this is where Star Students came in.
Star Students was able to assess our son’s needs and got him moving in the right direction almost immediately. Working with Star Students gave our son the support he needed to finish out the school year and start the fourth grade ready to learn. Instead of just teaching him, Star Students learned with our son in a way that focused on his strengths and interests. This made him far more open to learning, and this, for our son, was so essential to his ongoing success in the classroom.
Our son is doing fantastic at school now. He feels far more comfortable taking risks with his learning, and has taken huge strides towards his independent work habits and his motivation to learn.
