There needs to be a shift to emphasize trade schools. You can make a good living doing trade work. If society shifted some emphasis on trade schools and colleges were losing enrollment to trade schools, colleges would get a reality check really quick.

If the figures posted about Kettering tuition are accurate, that is disgusting.

I am currently in IT and am obtaining my degree in IT. After taking IT related classes, I see how unprepared this would leave a typical student who didn't have experience in the field. Someone entering the workforce would be grossly unprepared.


But alas, I want that piece of paper.
It's almost every college. Look at starting wages over that same time span and the real travesty really stands out.
