Workforce Development
« on: June 13, 2017, 03:02:36 PM »
This is a very exciting initiative by the Trump Administration.  I remember back in the 70's when there were a lot of apprenticeship programs for people to go into fields that required expertise, but not a 4 year degree.  This makes total sense to me and is a great idea.  These jobs pay just as much money as many STEM jobs.

Assistant to the President Ivanka Trump told reporters in a call previewing the week that the administration will be “focusing intensely around various initiatives that we’ve put in place that are incredible administrative priorities.”

“In recent decades there has been great focus on the importance of four-year education, higher education.  And the reality is that that is not the right path for everyone.  While it is the right path for many, it is not for everyone.”

Trump said that the administration is working to close the remaining “skills gap.”

This sounds like Mike Rowe is directing things.

Great!!!!
