Teach for the future: Closing job skills gap
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For decades, Mike Hummon, an unemployed substitute music teacher, was frustrated in his quest to become a school band director. Now, he good-naturedly endures frustrations of a different sort as a 53-year-old student in an accelerated manufacturing class here. In the classroom one day recently, the tiny hole he punched in a small block of metal was a few ten-thousandths of an inch off center. Hummon accepted he'd have to start over and carve a new block.

The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It is impossible to ignore the skills gap that exists in today's labor market and the fact that thousands of job openings go unfilled because too many individuals lack the skills to perform these jobs.

ARA via The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As students nationwide head back to school this fall, it is fascinating to reflect on how education has evolved over the past century. According to a Harvard University report, fewer than 10 percent of 18-year-olds in 1910 graduated from high school, compared to more than 75 percent in 2009, as reported by a similar study. Furthermore, where a college education was once confined to an elite minority, higher education today is attainable for the majority of Americans. Perhaps the most dramatic impact was made by the emergence of distance learning, which allows students to access degree programs targeting their unique educational goals from anywhere in the world.
