WSJ Op Ed Calls for Reinvigoration of "Shop Class" Education Offerings

An April 24 opinion column written by Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel calls for a reinvestment and focus on career and technical education. The article is titled "Welders Make $150,000? Bring Back Shop Class" and subtitled "Taking pride in learning to make and build things can begin in high school. Plenty of jobs await."

Mr. Mandel states:

Too many young people have four-year liberal-arts degrees, are thousands of dollars in debt and find themselves serving coffee at  Starbucks or working part-time at the mall. Many of them would have been better off with a two-year skilled-trade or technical education that provides the skills to secure a well-paying job.
