American RadioWorks - Ready to Work: Reviving Vocational Ed

Not every high schooler wants to go to college - and nearly half of our jobs don't require a bachelor's degree. So, many education experts say it's time to bring vocation education back in full force instead of following a "college is for everyone" philosophy in our schools. We'll explore how vocational programs have changed, and are reshaping debates about the purpose of public schools.

Coming up Saturday, September 20th at 3pm on 90.5FM WCBE.
