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.

The face of the average college student is changing: older, working while in school, female, and a mother. On this episode of American RadioWorks, we'll explore how many universities are adapting to the needs of this new typical student.
