Is Opportunity the Forgotten Issue of this Election?

“I think that one of the biggest disservices we’ve done to young adults is given them this idea that they need to have the success of a four-year degree. There are all types of trainee programs out there, whether you’re looking at a two-year degree or a credential that would help them find a family-sustaining wage. A great example of that, and something of that in our presidential agenda, is pushing for career technical education. And supporting universities that create programs that let you graduate from college with not just a diploma but also some type of working certificate.”
