Here’s a great article that is all about what we’ve been saying for years: the education system needs to offer career-driven alternatives to a four-year college!
The article quotes a Harvard University study that concluded: The current U.S. education system is failing to prepare millions of young adults for successful careers by providing a one-size-fits-all approach, and it should take a cue from its European counterparts by offering greater emphasis on occupational instruction.
The study notes that while much emphasis is placed in high school on going on to a four-year college, only 30% of young adults in the U.S. successfully complete a bachelor’s degree.
AND, the study notes that only one-third of the jobs created in the coming years are expected to need a bachelor’s degree or higher!
The report states that school reform should include more emphasis on career-driven alternatives to the present system.
